What is the dominant among the below elements of typology? The contribution is rather thematic, that is to say mainly addresses a case study
I recommend the contribution for an oral presentation but not for the publication in PeerJ Computer Science
Comments for the authors There are some English language problems in the text and so the language will need to be improved before inclusion in the proceedings (e.g. verificated = verified). More importantly, the open source approach shall be explained (how does the choice of OS make the difference in this topic? / is it related to the aim of reproducible methodology underlined in the conclusion? / especially how is OrbisGIS used to implement the solution? / does this project contribute in the development of OrbisGIS as a platform created by research and for research?). Just wondering do you also consider the permeability of the ground? Green-Red Vegetation Index (GRVI) may provide a better resolution.
Overall index of quality of the manuscript from 0 (poor quality) to 10 (good quality), passing from 5 (fair quality) 8
