Dynamic flood mapping application

Implement robust flood protection plans and improve emergency response by testing different climate scenarios and potential mitigation measures.


City leaders are facing challenges to protect community assets against flooding from the sea, rivers and microbursts. To find effective solutions, engineers, hydraulic and modelling experts, urban planners, climate economists and emergency agencies need to evaluate the effectiveness of flood protection measures, including the use of dikes, sluices and pumps.
FloodRisk helps to test different climate scenarios and the effect of proposed mitigation measures. Users can easily produce dynamic flood maps and access mapped and aggregated damage loss calculations. What’s more, the Early Warning mode evaluates emergency response scenarios with various mobile protection measures and damage loss indicators.

Save money

Know where to invest and allocate resources through access to accurate information on damage losses and mitigation measures

Support planning and early warning decisions

Gain key planning insight via scenario analyses and forecasts of water levels, runoff and cloudbursts for powerful, early warning support

Encourage co-creation and dialogue with stakeholders

Invite partners and stakeholders to set up scenarios and view results to support co-creation and co-decision making in choosing the best flood protection strategy

Have confidence in the accuracy of the system

Rest assured the results obtained from the coupled 1D-2D flood models are highly accurate as the system integrates MIKE Powered by DHI’s cloud-optimised computational engines

Get started today

Anyone can use FloodRisk so even non-modelling experts can access results sooner due to the straightforward workflow and easy-to-use interface

Key application areas

FloodRisk can be used to:
  • Perform climate adaptation analyses
  • Guide investment strategies
  • Conduct damage loss impact analyses
  • Develop flood prevention schemes
  • Support long and short term planning and decision making
  • Support emergency planning and early warning efforts

Get started!

FloodRisk is easy to use and follows a simple workflow: Define the event of interest e.g. a storm surge event with river runoff, rain and wind. Add damage losses by uploading an asset map and loss curves. Then incorporate mitigation measures by simply drawing on a map. Conduct a scenario simulation in parallel with other scenarios prepared for comparison and lastly, inspect and compare results as animations, flood/damage loss maps and aggregated losses.
