OpenLISEM Hazard 2.0a Pre-Release

Posted by vandenbout in the category Uncategorized

We are pleased to announce a pre-release alpha version of OpenLISEM Hazard 2.0. Before scrolling down to find it, please read the following improtant points.

The pre-release is for the purpose of a public-review publication. For this reason, all functionality besides the core model has been disabled for now. Since this includes a lot of features that make using the model a comfortable task, do not expect this current version to bring new oppurtunuties yet. After the public review has been finished, a full version of the model is planned to be released. For now, the time inbetween will be used to finalize some of the tools that we want to incorporate.

For the poeple that are still interested, the download link to the source code, executables and initial manual are provided at the bottom of this post.

Some examples of the OpenLISEM Hazard 2.0 software (NOTE: THIS IS A PRE-RELEASE, AND IS MISSING ALL THE COOL STUFF TO BE ADDED IN THE FULL VERSION)

What you can expect from this pre-release alpha of OpenLISEM Hazard 2.0?

  • A new GPU based version of the model. All code now runs on the GPU which can lead to a significant increase in speed and memory efficiency.
  • A new data viewer that allows users to add any raster/vector/web based layer to their model visualization. Thus, google earth imagery, or shapefiles can now be shown in combination with the models results.
  • A fully integrated 3D viewer. One single toggle will switch to the 3D viewer, where all the features still work identically! For some simple visualization, clouds, oceans and sky layers are also available.
  • A semi-structured mass movement model, which is about to be under review.

You can find the code for the model on the github repository:

An example of a flood visualization has been uploaded to the youtube page:

On a final note, the full version of OpenLISEM Hazard 2.0 features some incredible tools which are being finalized at this moment. This includes a fully-featured scripting language that integrated with the model for data preperation, customization, visualization and calibration. Besides this, this fully-featured geo-spatial scripting language incorporates easy acces to a variety of raster, vector, remote sensing and other algorithms and will come with a visual flow-chart style coding tool for educational purposes. Other planned features are a 3d vector/raster editing tool, and a more customizable gpu spatial modelling toolset.

It is important to note that, while we have tested the model extensively, there are always issues that simply do not arise during testing.
If you have any issues related to running the application, or want to contribute, please contact us at b.vandenbout@utwente.nl

If you wish to compile the code, please contact us using this same adress, as a variety of specific versions of specific libraries are required which are currently not linking easily using a cmake-configuration.

We wish you all the best with any modelling!

Kind regards,

Bastian
