Webmaps

To support my academic publications I created a number of webmaps (using OpenLayers) to present the spatial outputs.

Coastal Erosion Susceptibility Model

My PhD involved developing a GIS based model to assess the geomorphological hazard of coastal erosion: the Coastal Erosion Susceptibility Model (CESM) and Underlying Physical Susceptibility Model (UPSM).

The webmap supported the Fitton, J.M., Hansom, J.D., and Rennie, A.F., (2016) A national coastal erosion susceptibility model for Scotland publication.

Coastal Erosion Vulnerability Index

My PhD also involved developing a model to assess the socioeconomic vulnerability of the population and key assets to identify coastal erosion risk. This webmap shows the CESM and the Coastal Erosion Vulnerability Index (CEVI) developed from a geodemographic classification.

The webmap supported the Fitton, J.M., Hansom, J.D., and Rennie, A.F., (2018) A method for modelling coastal erosion risk: the example of Scotland publication.

Social Vulnerability Methodologies

This map shows the analysis of vulnerability to flooding in the Parrett catchment in southwest UK. We used a number of methods to map vulnerability and assessed the classifications to identify if there were any differences between the methods.

The webmap supported the Willis, I. and Fitton, J. (2016) A review of multivariate social vulnerability methodologies: a case study of the River Parrett catchment, UK publication.
