I am a strategist for the Rockefeller Foundation disasters program. I want to know which regions to prioritize for flood protection based on population exposed to asset loss so I can optimize the program funding.

I analyse the risk to future infrastructure and either issue or deny planning permission depending on the risk. I need data about the flood risk for a region so that I can make an informed decision about whether or not to grant permission.

I’m Mark and I’m a building inspector

Planning

I need to help identify flooded areas for an ongoing flood event. I need to compile existing flood maps on a daily basis to provide a daily map product to management for relief action. I also need to be able to evaluate the data to determine where false negatives and positives may impact my assessment.
