India FloodRisk™

First countrywide flood risk model

RMSI’s India FloodRisk™ provides comprehensive flood risk assessment for the entire country covering 19,000+ pincodes. India FloodRisk™ is a probabilistic flood risk model for 51 major urban agglomerations with significant flood risk accumulation along with modeled flood risk scores for the rest of the country with medium and low risk accumulation.The model integrates a visual map interface that makes it easy to understand and apply analysis.
