Our customers include

Get an overview with updated flood risk maps

Quickly map the flood risk from sea, in depressions or from watercourses to get an overview of the combined flood risk of a property, a neighborhood or an entire municipality. The map is constantly updated with the newest accessible data retrieved from governments and municipalities.

Understand the risk factors through interactive maps

Dynamic watersheds

Choose a point on the terrain to view the size and extent of an area contributing water to a chosen point and the flow path from that point to the nearest downstream depression. Use this to evaluate the layout of new urban development to determine the dimension of a stormwater management systems or to locate a source of pollution.

Flash Flood Map

Explore the Flash Flood Map to identify critical flood risk areas, volumes of water in those areas, and the flow paths of the water flowing to the area. Use this to design climate adaptation initiatives or to ensure that new infrastructure and urban development do not collide with critical risk areas.

Profiles

Investigate terrain slopes by quickly extracting elevation profiles. Use this to plan sewage and ditch systems, to investigate slope of flow paths, or to determine the natural ground level in connection with local or construction planning.

Basin Volume

View the volume of any basin in the terrain. Use this to investigate the capacity for collecting surface water in natural basins.

Investigate the effects of changing the terrain

Through a simple user interface, engineers, landscape architects and urban planners are able to evaluate the overall effects of terrain changes such as levees, canals, houses and retention basins in terms of flood risk. The video shows the planning process prior to constructing a new residential area. The houses are added together with canals and retention basins. Now, the updated analysis (blue) can be compared with the analysis of the original terrain (purple).

Manage emergency situations or work proactively with your emergency plan by investigating the damage of a potential levee breach or the effect of a mobile flood barrier. The illustration shows how a mobile flood barrier protects a residential area against the increasing water level in the inlet.

Investigate the effect of different climate adaptation initiatives, and share it with colleagues, politicians or advisors. Here is an example of a watershed (green) in a residential area, where the rain is led to a newly constructed retention basin.

Work with watercourse flooding and investigate the effect of changing the water flow rate, the sea level, the cross profile and the watercourse levees. This is an example of flooding from a watercourse after a 50-year rain event.
