Infoterra launches First Comprehensive Flood Risk Model of Great Britain to include Surface Water Fl
Infoterra, a provider of geospatial products and services, has launched the first comprehensive flood risk model of Great Britain to incorporate all the major causes of flooding, significantly assisting in the assessment of risk at a property level. The Pitt Review, which considers the lessons to be learnt from the Summer 2007 floods, clearly recommended the development and use of a new generation of tools for predicting and modelling flooding. This new Flood Risk Model meets that recommendation by going beyond traditional river and coastal flood risks to include the risks from surface water flooding, dam breaks and groundwater. In addition, the model takes into account single and multiple events. This improved information will be particularly valuable for decision support across a range of key markets, as well as providing essential data for emergency planners and responders.
