As a result of this novel approach, the client was able to:
— Accurately and quickly identify potential flood flow and plan for an increase in flooding that may result from climate change.
— Reduce the cost of mapping the overland flow areas considerably, leaving more budget for mitigation projects.
— Reduce the cost of flood damage to the community, property and infrastructure.
— Use the data to improve urban planning within the region.
— Set a new global benchmark for assessing overland flow flood risks.
