MyFloodRisk (for business)

HKV has transformed the data from the EU RAIN project to provide location based flood risk profiles showing flood probability against flood depth for different climate scenarios at any given location in the EU. This information can be used by companies to assess their flood risk and the costs and benefits of flood protection measures. In particular, businesses that are under the SEVESO III Directive are provided with easy to obtain and state of the art information in a user friendly way.
Technology validated in relevant environment.
Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components.
Business plan completed
The BRIGAID Business Development Programme has been successfully completed. A MAF+ assessment has been conducted and its results have been enriched and incorporated into a business plan document.
Currently the website is available in the Netherlands and is based state-of-the-art flood risk information. The website is currebtly being translated and filled with data from the EU RAIN project.

How does it work?

The visitor is guided through multiple screens to derive the flood risk profile. The process starts by selecting a location from a map. This can be done by entering an address ot by picking the location on an interactive map. The map returns the maximum flood depth which indicates whether the location is at risk from flooding. In next step the visitor is asked to register and accept a one time payment for obtaining the flood risk profile. When this step is completed the flood risk profile is generated, presented and explained, and provided as download for further use in a report.
