ForeCast answers the question: "Where is it going to flood tomorrow?
Traditional flood forecasting predicts river heights. However, that information can be hard to interpret.
ForeCast provides short term flood depth and extent forecasts as GIS data that is updated in real time as the event unfolds. This high resolution hyper-localized data makes it possible to quickly identify impacts to assets and communities in advance of the flood.
Ensure clear egress routes to avoid staff becoming trapped.
Updated every hour.
For example, at 2pm data is collected from all river stations for readings between 1-2pm. The models are run and the ForeCast layer is updated to reflect the new conditions before 3pm.
Up to 1m horizontal resolution, 1cm vertical resolution.
