Natural Disasters Loss is a AI project for natural disasters cost estimation. It uses predictive analytic services and AI for understanding and predict the cost from:
- Tornadoes (In Beta phase)
- Earthquakes (Under development)
- Floods (Under development)
- Tsunamis (Under development)
- Volcanoes (Under development)
- Wildfires (Under development)
Tornadoes-loss is a predictive service for calculating the loss in US dollars from a tornado.
This is a Machine Learning experiment, which implements Predictive Analytic service in GIS projects using Azure Machine Learning.
The data have being downloaded from NOAA's National Weather Service Storm prediction center .
The csv with the data of the tornadoes from 1950-2016 can be found here
The data have being uploaded, filtered and analyzed so they would be ready for training the model.
Azure Machine Learning
For this procedure was used the
Azure Machine Learning platform (link)
In the figure below shows the whole procedure for training and eveluating the model.
There have being used many Machine Learning Algorithms, but it end up in two:
- Two-Class Logistic Regression
- Two-Class Averaged Perceptron
The Roc Curve is over the random guess
The evaluation of the two training model are shown below
Notice, that the accuracy was around 85% and the precision 87%.
Then it was published as a service using the Azure Machine Learning Platform and the end point returned as a Swagger API endpoint.
For the need of the projected it was used JS libraries like D3.js, which creates very quickly svg inteactive maps.
Tornado loss perdiction analysis service is a case study for predicting the cost for more or less than $5,000,000.
The user can fill the parameters of the form and by submitting it, get the result of the loss than will occure.
There are two ways of querying the service:
- By selecting one month at a time.
- By selecting all the months and get an annual result.
For the first way, the client can discover if separately what will happen in a state. For the second way, the client can discover that is the period that is more probably to have loss more tha $5,000,000.
Below, are shown 3 examples with their results:
- tornado loss more than $5,000,000.
- tornado loss less than $5,000,000.
- tornado loss, 12 months prediction.
Example over than $5,000,000
Example less than $5,000,000
Example 12 month prediction
