Modeling wildfire propagation with Delaunay triangulation and shortest path algorithms
In this paper, a methodology for modeling surface wildfire propagation through a complex landscape is presented. The methodology utilizes a Delaunay triangulation to represent surface fire spread within the landscape. A procedure to construct the graph and estimate the rate of spread along the edges of a network is discussed. After the Delaunay data structure is constructed, a two pass shortest path algorithm is incorporated to estimate the minimum travel time paths and fire arrival times. Experimental results are also included.
