Issue

Rainwater flooding

Flooding due to heavy rainfall or high surface water levels.

Anticipating water nuisance is becoming a more urgent matter. Climate change and urbanization increases the impact of water nuisance. Until now, areas at risk are insufficiently known, or there is no early warning system available.

Solution

Flood Forecasting App

The Flood Forecasting App can be installed on a smartphone and gives out warnings when water nuisance starts occurring at a quick pace. This makes it possible to act in time, so the impacts of floods can be limited. This information is important to both governments, civilians, and industries.
