Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the possibility of giving proper hydrological forecasts for directing the behavior of people when a flood events occurs. Typically, these predictions are obtained through working with meteorological or hydrological data. Following, Context Aware techniques will be introduced as being supportive of using different kinds of information. In the area of environmental risk, this approach has made considerable progress in recent years (e.g. Vitolo et al., 2015; Park et al., 2016). In this paper, the abilities of these tools are shown to provide performances comparable to standard forecasting systems by applying them to two case studies in the area of London.
