Global Flood Maps

Our global flood maps provide flood extents and depths for multiple return periods across a range of flood sources.

High Quality Flood Maps

Our global flood maps provide flood extents and depths for multiple return periods, covering both river and surface water flooding, as well as coastal flooding in some countries. This allows for a consistent and comprehensive view of global flood hazard.

We are constantly striving to improve our maps though new data, research and innovation. We go to great lengths to ensure we are using the highest quality elevation data, which is a key input to any flood map. Our maps are available at 30m resolution for all countries and at 5m and 10m resolution for the UK and Europe, with other countries in development.

By distinguishing between different types of flooding, and by using 2D hydraulic modelling, we are able to simulate complex flooding to create our maps. Our commitment to quality and innovation means we are trusted implicitly to supply the best quality data to our clients. Our UK flood maps, for example, include mapping of six flood types: river, surface water, coastal, groundwater, dam break and canal failure, giving you a comprehensive view of your risk.

Our global flood maps are platform agnostic and available to use in-house or via our many resellers.

We selected JBA Risk Management to provide global flood zone and flood depth information because they offer both high quality data and global coverage. They also turn around flood information requests promptly - another major factor in our decision.
