Abstract

This study attempts to simulate evaluation flow after the flooding in the Kanto-Tohoku heavy rain in September 2015, using a mobile GPS data. A simple Monte Carlo approach is introduced to simulate micro-scale people flow from spatially sparse GPS information. The simulation result shows that GPS data effectively recovers people flow after flooding even if the simulation approach is very simple.
