Options appraisal

Quickly prepare, run, appraise and compare different options

Appraise and compare the benefits and costs of each option using a wide-range of features within Flood Modeller. Its automation tools allow you to streamline the model build process and prepare model runs, making it even easier to assess the various options available to you.

Key facts

  • A wide-range of automation tools are available to streamline the model build process, including the Python API

  • Flood Modeller's Simulation Builder and Batch Runner allow you to quickly set up multiple model runs using your existing software licences and computing resources

  • Flood Cloud enables rapid completion of all your simulations, allowing each simulation to be run concurrently in the cloud

  • The Damage Calculator tool helps you quickly appraise the benefits and costs of each option

Reducing the time and effort it takes to develop and run models, and process model results, provides you with more time to focus on option development and communicating modelling outputs with clients and stakeholders.

The GIS user interface and the model building tools automate much of the model build process. The simulation builder helps you to quickly set up a series of runs using different model configurations and event data. The Batch Runner enables you to automate the running of multiple simulations and the GIS tools streamline the process of creating flood maps.

The Damage Calculator tool is used to appraise the benefits and costs of each option and the free Flood Viewer web application enables you to share your results with anyone using a web browser.

If you have a tight deadline, or you do not have enough computers or licences available to run your simulations in time, use Flood Cloud. At the push of a button send your files to Flood Cloud and run all your models, at the same time, on an unlimited number of computers. Monitor the progress of each run in real-time and automatically download your results as soon as they become available.
