Rapid Emergency Response

Earth observations are a fast and efficient way to assess impact and damage during dynamic flood events. We gather imagery, local intelligence, and supplementary information sources to provide a clear description of unfolding disasters.

EXPLORE

Local Flood Exposure and Hotspot Analytics

Past flood events and historic flooding patterns lend many insights into the sustainability and risk for a variety of purposes. Whether deciding where to zone housing or where to relocate displaced communities, understanding the past is critical.

EXPLORE

Global Library of Historic Flood Events

Almost 1,000 of the world’s extreme floods from the past 20 years have been mapped and will be publicly released in 2019. With support from Google Earth Outreach and in collaboration with the Dartmouth Flood Observatory, the Global Flood Database will be the largest database of spatialized flood maps.
