“Does this location first become isolated prior to inundation?”

Easy interrogation

Easily extract water levels, flood depths, flood hazards, velocities, and VxD at any location on the floodplain.

Seamless surface

Create a seamless, single surface representing, say, the maximum 100-year flood level across all flooding mechanisms, across all catchments.

Planning level

Add a buffer to design flood levels to easily show properties within a flood planning zone and their required minimum floor levels.

Automated certificates

Setup a system to automatically prepare flood certificates.

waterRIDE provides planners with an intuitive toolset to interrogate, analyze, share and understand the implications of flooding, without the need to learn traditionally complex, technical software.

Successful floodplain planning requires an understanding of the implications of flooding on the community and development. Traditional deliverables from a flood modelling project include static snapshots of model results, taken at the peak of the flood. The limitation of such GIS deliverables is that they do not provide the flexibility a planner requires to “slice and dice” the results, or to access the time-varying flood behavior. For example, does an area first become isolated prior to inundation?

More Benefits

  • Access any flood model results
    Interrogate any of your model results with the convenience of a single interface.
  • Assess any type of flooding
    Storm surge, riverine, overland flow or piped.
  • Familiar yet faster GIS environment
  • Automated flood extents
    Rapidly generate GIS flood extents to use in any GIS package, with sophisticated smoothing options.
  • Floodway, flood storage, flood fringe
    Boolean logic queries allow you to identify zones where velocity and depth meet certain criteria to assist with definition of floodways, flood storage areas and the flood fringe.
  • Multi-criteria property tagging
    Rapidly identify and tag properties as flood affected
  • Metadata
    Tag all of your model results with additional information such as source report, results date, and comments for quality assurance purposes.
  • Property photos
    Integrate flood levels with scaled property photos to provide a realistic image of flooding at an individual property. Greatly enhance community flood awareness and understanding.
  • Flood impact mapping
    Easily visualise the impact of proposed development.
  • Data sharing
    Easily provide access to flooding information across an organisation.
