Flood Foresight

Effective flood management begins with Foresight

Flood Foresight is a globally-scalable operational system providing data on rainfall severity, flood inundation footprints and depth, and flood impacts. These datasets are updated at up to three hours’ frequency and allow rapid loss estimation for current and forecast flood states, supporting decision-making before, during and after major flood events.

Designed to be compatible with existing business intelligence and decision support tools, Flood Foresight supports operational flood management in the infrastructure, insurance, utilities and civil contingencies sectors.
