A hazard map for disaster management

The above map is a flood depth map that visualizes an extreme flood hazard HQ500 for the municipality of Bennewitz. It has been created in the RISK MAP project which was aimed at improving and optimising hazard and risk maps for different users and use cases. The sample map shown above uses tactical signs to depict various elements at risk, as well as items relevant for disaster management (response). See the following publication for more detail:
