Now financially feasible for any city and municipality
Flood4Cast Master Planner

Water impact analysis of climate adaptive and remedial measures: Tens of times faster and much more cost-effective

Flood4Cast® MASTER PLANNER allows the flood susceptibility of a province, city or municipality to be identified up to tens of times more rapidly than is possible using conventional modelling software.

This integrated ‘water in the street’ modelling features ingenious pre-processing based on existing GIS maps, and very short model build-up and calculation times. Calibrations with other models or simplifications are no longer necessary.

Developed in collaboration with research organisation VITO and with the support of Vlaio.
