Flood Hazards, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment using Analytical Hierarchy Process in Excel and ArcGIS

Are you interested in gaining essential skills to assess and manage flood hazards, vulnerabilities, and risks using cutting-edge geospatial tools and techniques? Enroll in our comprehensive online course, "Flood Hazards, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessment using Analytical Hierarchy Process in Excel and ArcGIS," and take your expertise in flood risk management to the next level.

Read the Published Paper Prepared During this Course


In this online certificate course, you can learn the complete process (A-Z) from scratch to production. How to select parameters and why, download raster and vector data, processing data, images in ArcGIS environment, justification of variables, step by step guide of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in excel, produced prediction map applying AHP method in flood hazard, vulnerability and risk using GIS. Moreover, you can also learn sensitivity analysis and validation of the susceptibility model in ArcGIS.

Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is the most powerful multi-criteria decision-making and Problem-Solving method first introduced by Saaty in 1980. In short, it is used for ranking the attributes to select the optimal attribute based on the hierarchical structure of goal at the top level, criteria at the second level, and alternative at third level

After completing this online certificate course, you will be efficiently able to process, predict, and validate any data related to hazard, vulnerability, risk, and suitability assessment using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP).

Keywords: Excel, ArcGIS, Analytical Hierarchy Process, Mapping, Prediction, Single Parameter Sensitivity Analysis, Map Removal Sensitivity Analysis
