My Flood Risk is available in the app stores. The app contains the flood depths with estimated return period of 10, 100 and 1000 years, based on the IPCC climate predictions for the period 1971-2000. Updates are foreseen for future climate projections (2050, 2100). The Pan-European flood maps were prepared within project “Risk Analysis of Infrastructure Networks in response to extreme weather” (RAIN). RAIN received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 608166.
Technology demonstrated in relevant environment.
Representative model or prototype system, which is well beyond that of TRL 5, is tested in a relevant environment. Represents a major step up in a technology’s demonstrated readiness. Examples include testing a prototype in a high-fidelity laboratory environment or in a simulated operational environment.
The apps are launched in the summer of 2018. The software is already completely tested and reliable, as the app is based on the existing Dutch equivalent OverstroomIk? Improvements or updates are based on user experiences and feedback, e.g. with regard to language and functionality. HKV invites national, regional and local authorities in the EU to validate the data against local data sets.

How does it work?

EU citizens with smart phones can download the app from the Android or Apple stores. The app contains a map showing the exposed areas. By ticking a location (e.g., your home) the app provides the estimated flood depth for the selected return period. The apps provides these maps free of charge.
