"Australia Flood Map application does not show current or historic flood level but it shows all the area below set elevation."

Disclaimer: Please note that this elevation flood map on its own is not sufficient for analysis of flood risk since there are many other factors involved. Surface runoff, flow diversion, land type etc. are also responsible for the flood coverage in addition to elevation. But this flood map should help in some extent in the following areas:

About

  • Australia Flood Map may be useful to some extent for flood risk assessment or in flood management, flood control etc.
  • Australia Flood Map may help to provide flood alert/flood warning if flood water level at certain point is rising.
  • Australia Flood Map can help to locate places at higher levels to escape from floods or in flood rescue/flood relief operation.
  • It can also provide floodplain map and floodline map for streams and rivers.
  • Effect of sea level rise or sea level change can be seen on the map. This could be helpful in coastal areas.
  • It can help to perform elevation analysis of an area for any purpose like city/town planning, new construction etc.
  • We also think that it can help in planning irrigation system and water management.
  • By setting negative elevation, Bathymetry study is also possible.

The elevation layered on the map is in meters and is from sea level. The elevation is zero for the sea level. Negative elevation means depth below sea level.
