Firstly, the distance and similarity measure of various heterogeneous data are introduced, and the heterogeneous information attribute weights are obtained using the deviation maximization method. Then, the psychological expectation value of each attribute given by the decision maker is used as a reference point, thereby calculating the gain and loss of each attribute value relative to the reference point, and establishing a gain matrix and a loss matrix. On this basis, the prospect theory is used to obtain the comprehensive prospect value of each alternative, so as to obtain the alternative ordering result and optimal alternative. Finally, an illustrative example about typhoon disaster assessment is presented to show the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method, and the advantages of the proposed method are illustrated by comparison with other methods.
