Researching a Coupled Simulation Strategy of SVM-Based Storm Surge Prediction Model and GIS



Aiming at the difficulties from adopting numerical calculation to solve storm surges at specific geographic, a coupling method of Support Vector Machine (SVM)-based storm surges prediction model and GIS was proposed in this paper. Utilized the powerful function provided by GIS including spatial analysis and data support, and rich graphic expression, combined with the advantages of model at the remarkable ability of numerical solution and analysis and forecasting, it can present spatial correlation and trends of spatial changes. The coupled result shows the spatial and temporal distribution chart of storm tide, which, to a certain degree, increased the analytical capabilities of MGIS and the ease of the model.
