Data sources to inform your flood models
Access our comprehensive list of data sources and datasets to find out how to obtain the data you need to build different types of flood models.

Case Studies


Enhancing your flood risk assessments 

Learn how Oakshire Environmental enhanced their Flood Risk Assessments and Flood Mitigation Options Appraisals. Flood Modeller's 1D and 2D solvers were used to identify and assess the nature of flooding at a public park, and determine a suitable strategy to mitigate this flooding. 

National Real-Time Flood Forecasting

The Environment Agency needed a reliable way to accurately forecast flood extents in real-time for the whole of England. Using Flood Modeller, Jacobs developed the Flood Incident Mapper platform, enabling effective response planning and reducing unnecessary flood alerts.

Wetland feasibility study
Cork Great, Ireland

Corke Valley Park is a public park located in the townland of Cork
Great, County Dublin, Ireland. IE Consulting were commissioned to prepare
a hydrological characterisation of the Wilford Stream and its
catchment at Corke Valley Park.

Groundwater modelling
South East England, UK

Flood Modeller's 2D solver was used to route the groundwater fluxes and produce flood depth results to create groundwater flood hazard maps and improve community resilience to groundwater flooding.

Integrated catchment modelling
Yorkshire, England

Flood Modeller's 1D urban and 2D solvers were used to understand the flooding mechanisms involving overland flow from an open channel and the subsequent overflowing of the sewer system in a small and heavily urbanised catchment.

Midleton Flood Relief Scheme
Midleton, Co. Cork, Ireland

Arup was commissioned by Cork County Council to develop a flood relief scheme for Midleton, Co. Cork, to address the long history of flooding in the town.

National flood mapping

Fluvial flood mapping to enable scientific and engineering informed analysis of flood risk was undertaken for Taiwan. Using Flood Modeller's industry-leading 1D and 2D solvers, Jacobs developed flood mapping for the whole of Taiwan.

2D modelling of urban flooding
Dubai, UAE

A flood risk assessment for the EXPO 2020 rapid transit rail system extension involving integrated hydrologic analysis with detailed 2D hydraulic modelling of the urban areas. Flood Modeller was chosen due to its ability to accurately model complex flows in urban environments.

Complex structures & operational rules
Somerset Levels, England

A catchment scale study with over 270 km of embankments, 40 separate pumps, and long duration flood events. Flood Modeller was selected due its ability to model complex structures and their operational control and the robustness of its solvers.

Dam-breach modelling
Lane City Reservoir, USA

Flood Modeller's 2D TVD solver was used to undertake dam-breach modelling of the Lane City Reservoir dam. It allowed complex hydraulics of steep changes in velocity and water level to be calculated more accurately.

Integrated 1D-2D modelling
Parramatta River, Australia

Flood Modeller's 1D and 2D ADI solvers have been applied to simulate combined fluvial and direct rainfall flooding in a sub-catchment of the Parramatta River in Sydney. They were selected for their speed and stability.

Integrated Catchment Modelling
Colorado, USA

An integrated catchment study for the Little Shooks Run drainage basin within the City of Colorado Springs. A Flood Modeller 1D urban model was used to identify areas at risk of flooding once the subsurface drainage system exceeded capacity.
