ESRI Spain and Ambiental Risk Analytics partnership brings ArcGIS users increased data insights into climate change risk
Ambiental has partnered with ESRI Spain, a leading company in location intelligence. The collaboration will enhance the ArcGIS platform with joint solutions for advanced predictive models, to support users in better understanding and predicting the location and impact of all kinds of floods, in order to prevent damage and calculate risks to property, people and businesses.
The integration of Ambiental’s solutions (FloodMap, FloodScore and FloodScore Climate) into Esri's ArcGIS geospatial data analysis platform, will enable users to develop advanced flood models to analyse risks arising from the effect of climate change. The resulting models brings users multiple benefits:
- the ability to design better containment plans
- a better operational view during episodes of flooding or torrential rain
- opportunities for identifying which assets and properties present the greatest risk (with up to 5 metre resolution)
- improved ways for efficiently managing real estate assets and determining their status and level of risk to natural hazards
- among other applications.

These models can be applied to all types of flood risks, whether they are of pluvial, fluvial, coastal origin or a mix. In addition, the solution can be applied to analyze both the most immediate risks and to develop predictive models for years to come, for any possible scenario, from the best case to the worst, or the most probable, to protect properties, real estate, farmland and any other asset or employees and field operators.
Jaime Nieves, Head of Services and Geospatial Data at Esri Spain said: “Flooding is one of the greatest risks of natural origin in Spain and, unless we act, these risks will only increase due to the effect of climate change. The available public data does not offer enough spatial or temporal detail to carry out a detailed assessment of business risk, so we hope to contribute with this integration to help companies, public administrations and users in general to be better prepared”.
Rob Carling, Channel Sales Manager at Ambiental Risk Analytics, commented: "At the recent COP26 conference, President Pedro Sánchez announced that Spain would increase climate finance to 1.35 billion euros a year from 2025 onwards. As a result, we think the demand for climate data will grow significantly over the next few years. We are delighted to partner with the geospatial experts ESRI so their clients can quickly gain access to our high-resolution flood and climate data."
