What is the Flood Impact Analysis solution template?

 

The Flood Impact Analysis solution template can be used to develop flooding scenarios and visualize the impact on the existing landscape. It leverages flood depth data to analyze the impact of flood events on critical assets such as buildings, bridges, low water crossings and roads.  It also can be used to create compelling 3D visualizations that make it easier to understand and communicate the real impact of flooding events.

 

Benefits

The flood impact analysis solution template leverages flood depth data to analyze the impact of flood events on critical assets such as buildings, bridges, low water crossings and roads. You can: 

  • Define flood impact areas at each flood stage
  • Determine what assets will be impacted and by how much
  • Communicate the results of the analysis to community stakeholders
  • Prepare hard-copy operations maps for first-responders on scene
  • create compelling 3D visualizations that make it easier to understand and communicate the real impact of flooding events. 

Example: Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
