A web-based tool was developed to help planners with estimating the potential amounts of debris that hurricanes could cause in Broward County, Florida. It uses parcel, tree canopy and storm surge data to calculate potential debris amounts at the Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ) level. This interactive tool uses ASP and ArcIMS to calculate the three main types of debris caused by hurricanes: construction & debris (C&D), vegetation-related (downed trees/ branches), and sediment (from surge effects). This paper will present the logic behind the model, as well as some of its pros and cons, and comparison to other models.
