To provide users with visual information on flood risk.

What it does

Normally flood risks are provided by texts in documents. We allow users to interact with a web map to figure out the spatial relation between flood hazards of different places.

How we built it

Making use of Python packages such as Folium for map making, and APIs provided by the agency (if available, e.g. Copernicus' CDS API).

Challenges we ran into

Data sources are so diverse and non-asynchronous. We have to generate data for the map features.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Just a prototype of a small web solution that displays on browsers

What we learned

Various skills in organising the program, handling data, and coding.

What's next for EstuaRisk

Connecting the output of models to the map and allowing comparison between scenarios.
