Instructions

The flood maps on this website are categorised into urban area and rural area maps which you can select by clicking the tabs above. The urban area maps are at a larger scale (more detailed) than the rural area maps. To find the appropriate map, either select your town/village for the urban area maps or select the river you are interested in for the rural area maps. Sometimes more than one map will cover the area you are interested in and in some locations there will be a fluvial (river flow) and tidal influence.

Adobe Acrobat

The maps on this website are provided in PDF format, you will need a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them. It is available free of charge from the website of Adobe Reader. http://www.adobe.com/fr/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

There are four urban area map types available for viewing - extent, depth, velocity and hazard maps. Please select the map type you wish to view.

  • Extent Maps
  • Depth Maps
  • Velocity Maps
  • Hazard Maps

Extent Maps (Urban Areas)

Flood extent maps show the estimated area inundated by a flood event of a given probability of occurrence. Flood extent maps are available for both existing conditions and a projected future scenario, where the maps for future scenarios include allowances for projected future changes in both climate and land use These maps also show water levels, flows and defended areas.

Urban area extent maps can be found by selecting the town/village that you are interested in and then selecting the flood extent you require (existing or future). Sometimes more than one map is available per town/village and in some locations there will be a fluvial (river flow) and a tidal influence. If you require rural area maps then please select the 'Rural Area' tab above.

Depth Maps (Urban Areas)

Depth maps illustrate the estimated flood depths for areas inundated by a flood event of a given probability of occurrence.  Depth maps are available for a number of annual exceedance probability (AEP) events. The AEP is the likelihood of a particular magnitude flood occurring or being exceeded in any given year.  Thus, a 1% AEP event describes a flood event which has a 1% (or 1 in 100) chance of occurring or being exceeded in any given year.

Urban area depth maps can be found by selecting the town/village that you are interested in and then selecting the flood depth map you require (10%, 1%, 0.1% AEP fluvial and 10%, 0.5%, 0.1% AEP tidal). Sometimes more than one map is available per town/village and in some locations there will be a fluvial (river flow) and a tidal influence. If you require rural area maps then please select the 'Rural Area' tab above.

Velocity Maps (Urban Areas)

Velocity maps illustrate the estimated speed of the flood water for a flood event of a given probability of occurrence.  Velocity maps are available for a number of annual exceedance probability (AEP) events. The AEP is the likelihood of a particular magnitude flood occurring or being exceeded in any given year.  Thus, a 1% AEP event describes a flood event which has a 1% (or 1 in 100) chance of occurring or being exceeded in any given year.

Urban area velocity maps can be found by selecting the town/village that you are interested in and then selecting the flood velocity you require (10%, 1%, 0.1% AEP fluvial). Velocity maps are not available for tidal flooding as the magnitude of the velocities experienced at high tides are generally quite low.   Sometimes more than one map is available per town/village and in some locations there will be a fluvial (river flow) and a tidal influence. If you require rural area maps then please select the 'Rural Area' tab above.

Hazard Maps (Urban Areas)

Hazard maps show the likely harm or danger to which people may be exposed for a flood event of a given probability of occurrence.  Hazard maps are available for a number of annual exceedance probability (AEP) events. The AEP is the likelihood of a particular magnitude flood occurring or being exceeded in any given year.  Thus, a 1% AEP event describes a flood event which has a 1% (or 1 in 100) chance of occurring or being exceeded in any given year.

Urban area hazard maps can be found by selecting the town/village that you are interested in and then selecting the flood hazard map you require (10%, 1%, 0.1% AEP fluvial and 10%, 0.5%, 0.1% AEP tidal). Sometimes more than one map is available per town/village and in some locations there will be a fluvial (river flow) and a tidal influence. If you require rural area maps then please select the 'Rural Area' tab above.

Depth Maps (Rural Areas)

Depth maps illustrate the estimated flood depths for areas inundated by a flood event of a given probability of occurrence.  Depth maps are available for a number of annual accidence probability (AEP) events. The AEP is the likelihood of a particular magnitude flood occurring or being exceeded in any given year.  Thus, a 1% AEP event describes a flood event which has a 1% (or 1 in 100) chance of occurring or being exceeded in any given year.

Rural area maps can be found by selecting the river you are interested in and then selecting the flood depth map you require (10%, 1%, 0.1% AEP fluvial and 10%, 0.5%, 0.1% AEP tidal).
