FloodMap Live is a live modelling software that continuously simulates flooding through our specially developed flood modelling software (FloodMap). It provides a 48 hour outlook of street level flooding which is simulated using IBM Weather Company rainfall forecasts and nowcasts. Using high-quality topographic and hydrological data FloodMap simulates flood events for cities and countries globally.
The research that underpins the technology was published in internationally respected journals over two decades. A selection of these publications are listed below:
