Agent-based rumor spreading models for human geography applications

Abstract:

Communication has a large impact on the outcome of a population’s response during disaster scenarios. The ability of a population to access news and disaster relief information as well as the population’s perception of the information they receive effects behavior during a disaster scenario. In this paper, two agent-based rumor (information) spreading models are developed to study the spread of information during disaster scenarios. The disaster scenario studied in this paper is the evacuation of an island population to shelters.
