At a Glance

  • Detailed visualisations of potential flood risks
  • Three levels of detail
  • Can be integrated into your existing system
  • We have flood maps for most countries and can create new ones on request

Our flood maps are used around the world by insurers, government agencies, property developers and emergency response services to visualise, assess and understand potential flood risk.

Flexible resolution and licensing options

To make our flood maps as flexible and affordable as possible, you can choose varying resolutions. Or focus on specific regions. You can also request that only some sources of risk are included. Depending on your needs, you may opt for a general, city-level resolution, or you may opt for street or even building-level resolution.


Delivered as flood maps or flood risk datasets

We can supply flood maps as PDF documents, or as GIS layers or flat files that can be integrated into virtually any existing flood monitoring system.
