Abstract
This paper proposes an approach to improve the diffusion coefficient of the geospatial information diffusion model. The diffusion coefficient calculated by the average distance formula is appropriately amplified to become the initial diffusion coefficient. Employing a search method, we take two test points in the search interval consisting of 0 and the initial diffusion coefficient. Comparing the errors of the two test points used in the geospatial information diffusion model, we adjust the search interval: if the error of the left test point is small, the left point of the new search interval is unchanged, and the original right point of search interval is replaced with the right test point; if the error of the right test point is small, The right point of the new interval is unchanged, and the original left point of search interval is replaced with the left test point. Repeatedly, the search interval is continuously narrowed until the distance between the two test points is less than a given value, then the search is stopped. Meanwhile, the test point with a small error will be an optimized diffusion coefficient. A case constructing a relationship between the background data and disaster, with a sample size of 30, shows that the diffusion coefficient can reduce error approximately 17%.
