Flood maps allow governments to identify local areas which are at risk of flooding. Early knowledge of these areas helps them to build safely and resiliently. Flood maps provide a good foundation for efficient flood-risk management.
Highly accurate flood maps created by Magnasoft have been helping governments of different countries to draw up efficient flood-risk management plans. These plans have helped them in building resiliently, preventing flood damages and facilitating rescue operations in a more effective manner.
Floods cause huge losses in terms of life and property. The social and economic impact of the disaster is huge. The increasing settlement in the coastal areas, river basins and lakeshores along with deforestation and climate changes are going to increase the frequency of floods in the times to come. Research indicates that in Europe only losses due to floods would increase fivefold by 2050 and up to 17-fold by 2080 in Europe. To mitigate these risks, it is necessary for governments to undertake flood mapping. Flood maps are crucial for flood risk management. They are essential for avoiding or minimizing the damage to life and property caused by floods. They also help in communicating about flood risks.
Magnasoft holds extensive experience in creating highly accurate Flood maps for different countries. Flood maps created by us accurately indicate the population, economic activities and environment which are at potential risk from flooding.
Flood maps created by us are useful for establishing zoning, land use, and building standards. They help in supporting land use, infrastructure, transportation, emergency management planning, flood warning, evacuation and preparing and responding to floods.
Flood models can be used to simulate flood events, thereby enabling land administrators to have a better understanding of flood risk. This understanding makes them better prepared to manage the risks.
A Flood map identifies areas which are at risk of flooding. These maps provide a solid foundation for highly efficient flood-risk management.
Flood maps are important because they inform the community about the local flood risks. These maps help in setting minimum floodplain standards helping the communities to build safely and resiliently. Flood maps largely help in land administration and management. They help in determining the cost of flood insurance, thereby helping property owners to financially protect themselves against flooding.
Magnasoft leverages on LiDAR to generate models which offer accurate and quick solutions for flood mapping. These highly accurate maps are used land administrators and developers to determine if an area is at risk of flooding. These maps also help insurers to determine flood insurance premiums in areas where flood insurance exists. The creation of flood maps usually combines topographic data with historic or modeled information. This allows for water level determination and shows how this water could flood inland under extreme conditions.
