A GIS based network analysis for the identification of shortest route access to emergency medical facilities

Ionel Haidu

Abstract

Traffic emergencies represent events that pose a great threat for the life of individuals and the development of human societies. The frequency of road accidents is related to the behavior of people, density of people, behavior of the machines as well as the arrangement of the infrastructure. At any accident three different types of vehicles can respond: ordinary vehicles, ambulances and police or fire fighters. There is a great need for the response time to be as low as possible. This response time depends on the condition of the emergency response vehicle and the possible obstructions or prohibition along the road network. The present study is an attempt to model shortest path and closest facility problems in order for an ambulance to travel trough a road network, by creating a system based on GIS technology and application on the city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
