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.

contingencies sectors.


Data are available via web-app, API, download or email for integration into your workflow.
