Our work describes a model and an application to present the car traffic simulation on the Popocatépetl Volcano zone. Since 1994, Risk Management Office in Mexico has declared around 30 km from the Popocatépetl Volcano crater a danger zone. This office defined several roads to evacuate the people when a Volcano event can be presented. Our application takes data from Geography Markup Language (GML) format describing the simulation car traffic. The system which constructs the simulation was developed for the Fraunhofer FIRST team in Berlin, Germany. The data are translated to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format to be visualised in a browser and to produce in an animated cartography environment the car traffic simulation on the Popocatépetl Volcano area. A new approach based on Answer Set Programming (ASP) is introduced as a proposal to work with incomplete and uncertain data.
