Quickly evaluate and quantify flood risk to property across Europe
We are rolling out our FloodScore and FloodMap products across Europe, designed to support insurers, banks and lenders in making quicker, more accurate decisions around flood risk.
FloodScore provides property-level flood risk scores and flood risk information for all properties in European countries and covers both residential and commercial premises. This highly granular data can be used to quickly evaluate and quantify flood risk from all flood sources at a range of statistical return periods. It’s available as a full or partial database, or as spatial layers.
FloodScore uses Ambiental’s advanced flood modelling techniques, and integrates the most complete and up-to-date flood and building stock data available. It also incorporates the most current hydrology data and complete IfSAR coverage for the pertaining country.
The data provides a convenient overall, combined flood score risk, whilst also allowing interrogation of the underlying different flood mechanisms relating to flood return periods and depths for each flood source. The data also provides an indication of the future flood risk base
Our flood maps are used by insurers, government agencies, property developers and emergency response services to visualise, assess and understand potential flood risk. Using our proven flood simulation software and high-quality topographical data, we can generate flood maps or flood risk datasets for most countries around the world.
Ambiental FloodMap fluvial data for Switzerland

- Consistent view of flood risk across all European countries
“As a result of extreme weather events and climate change, we’re starting to see an increased frequency of river, tidal and pluvial flood events happening across the UK, Europe and internationally.
In response to that, the new Europe FloodMap and FloodScore products we are rolling out use the latest high-resolution digital terrain models to predict flooding from all sources down to individual property level. These allow us to write and price risk much more accurately and cost-effectively than was previously possible.”
