A variety of models, methods, and computer-aided systems have been used to predict and analyze disasters and emergencies, and manage a pertinent medical response effectively. The list of these instruments traditionally comprises: computerized databases, geographic information systems (GISs), graph theory, complex networks, mathematical programming, simulation, and agent-based modeling. As a rule, each type of those is applied asunder. It makes sense to put in one silo diverse instruments to get multidisciplinary solution with its synergy effect for problems of disaster and emergency medicine.
Within this study, an original, agent-based model was developed. The model combines the advantages of the principal computer-aided instruments and considers all the types of information: semantic, topographical, metric, and topological. The model is severely dynamic, fits to real actors and principally covers all the disaster situation.
In line with the model, a so called Topometric Agent-Based System (TABS) with its key visualization component has been designed. A TABS-specific simulation to investigate behavior of the attacked network of vulnerable actors has been conducted leading to critical findings. It has been shown a severe significance of order within combination of threats: man-made + natural or those of natural + man-made. A well-balanced financial distribution to protect actors of diverse status also has been found.
A TABS similar to GIS focuses on mapping. Topometric Agent-Based System mapping brings an efficient and clear language for information sharing not only within national emergency medical services but between experts from different fields and countries.
