New Tools for Investigating Flood-prone Areas

There is a real need to create new, insightful information products that can be used to proactively investigate flood-prone areas across a whole range of scales – from sites to river basins to a national level. Elevation is the single most important variable in determining flood hazard levels, and we focus on this by developing three flood analysis tools. Each can be implemented at scale and is a significant undertaking. We hope these tools can provide more geographic context and shed light on some key hydrodynamic processes about flooding.

You map out solutions to real-life problems every day. You just need someone to map out the GIS software landscape for you.

A Top 10 List of Useful Geospatial Data Portals

These are 10 useful Geospatial Data portals, We have decided to list 10 of those that we have found most useful, rich with content, easy to use, and with metadata that is available and understandable. In considering such a list, we realize that “most useful” really depends on the application that one is using GIS for, but the following sites should be useful for users in many disciplines. Some allow for data to be streamed from web servers into your GIS software, and all allow data to be downloaded.
