Hazard Data

Inland Flood

  • World-wide inland flood data coverage with flood depths at multiple return periods
  • 2-d hydraulic modeling of both pluvial (surface water) and fluvial (riverine) flooding in all areas
  • No arbitrary threshold on the catchment area where modeling is performed, we model everywhere
  • Resolution varies by region dependent on available DTMs, down to 10 meters in the US
  • Relative Risk Score layer

Storm Surge

  • Storm surge inundation heights for the US Gulf and Atlantic Coasts
  • 10 return periods ranging from 10 to 10,000 years
  • Relative Risk Score layer

Wind

  • Return Period Wind Speeds for the US, Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America
  • Additional regions under development

Ancillary Data

  • FEMA DFIRM Flood Zones
  • Areas protected by levees
  • USGS Hydrologic Unit Codes (HUCs)
