www.gri.msstate.edu • Total gravity surface derived and then a specific gravity (capture rate) calculated for site in question • The total number of consumers captured are determined by population density. • Distance can be measured as a crow flies, along a transportation network or in terms of estimated travel time. Background Specific Gravity

www.gri.msstate.edu Economic Impact Modeling the economic impact of adding new competitive locations displayed from Red (High) to Low (Blue) Hypothetical Locations Potential Trade region

www.gri.msstate.edu Trade influence in the Southern Mississippi High Low the site and situation of the center influential to economy with respect to factors such as the type and age of center, proximity of competitors, accessibility, visibility, clientele, topography, crime, and socioeconomic factors. Thus, it is essential to account for market structure and the types of products or transportation for proper use of gravity models.

www.gri.msstate.edu Previous Prediction Models United States Forest Service models use correlations between the historical observational and geographical data, climatic and vegetation components to obtain fire risk potential indices There are few models which account both fuel loads and ignition sources to predict wildfire potential Road Density and road buffers tells about the activity along corridors but not the activities (from traffic vol) and its origin from the cities (Cooke and Grala, 2010; Gilreath, 2006) Gravity based model gives a GLOBAL measure of propulsiveness and a measure of destination attractiveness as the flow of activity between different zones, but does not consider the transportation corridors (Sadasivuni et al., 2013). Most wildfire ignition distribution models fail to define the diffusion direction, while diffusion seldom occurs across the Euclidean distance, but along the transportation corridors (Ayeni 1979)

www.gri.msstate.edu A Large city is more likely to attract an individual than a smaller city Newton’s formula is modified with physical mass for population size PiPj and a friction (cost) is inverse power function of distance f(cij)=dij -λ Pij = PiPj / dij -λ where λ is a parameter of the function dij is the distance between i and j (Sadasivuni et al. 2013, “Ecological Modeling”) “Perhaps the best-known model of spatial interaction is the gravity model, so called because of its analogy with the Newtonian concept of gravity. The traditional gravity model is based on the hypothesis that the interaction between any two masses varies directly with the product of the masses and inversely with some measure of the spatial separation or cost between the two masses” Predicting human activity patterns of incendiary activity using diffusion and convection with Newton’s Gravity Model. Gravity Model

www.gri.msstate.edu Background: SIM Road Density as Human Ignition (Gilreath, 2005) Not Accurate for high risk zones, such as along roads

www.gri.msstate.edu Gravity Model previously applied for wildfire prediction Shows good interaction among cities, aligned along the roads Performs poorly than Road density model in Medium risk zones (outskirts of the city), and very low risk zones Background Gravity Model In the broadest sense, the movement of people/animals/commodity/capital or information across the geographic space are modeled with origin, destination and transportation routes (in enhanced method later) that solve the problems of dispersion through GIS decision analysis.

www.gri.msstate.edu Approach: Modeling Philosophy Movement of people are: general guided by the cities aligned with the transportation corridors anisotropically aligned along high traffic volume roads provide access points to the woods for people with incendiary motive Anthropogenically initiated wildfire is directly related to the movement of people Influencing factors grouped as global and local variables. Global variables are modeled using Gravity term Local variables are parameters of transportation corridors modeled as convective/diffusive fluxes

Similarly the depth ranges that are possible belong to three categories. Any combination of these yield and depth ranges is possible to occur and the numbers of combinations are many. • To represent each combination on the map a VIBGYOR color scheme is used and is given at 15 as fixed part of the legend
