Flood maps in #TrueColour3D reveal new depths and heights @OpenDefra @DefraGovUK @MrMikeRose @jaCattell

These maps are available on data.gov.uk

DEFRA the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Areas has been participating in the government’s Open Data initiative with Open Defra and Defra Digital.

Re-visualising them with our Smart Knowledge Engine as a 3D object reveals remarkable depths and heights in the ‘pixel accuracy’ that we deliver. After all, imaging technologies flatten both earth and waters.

The question is whether flood experts are happy with what they are used to seeing or whether they’d be interested in exploring more depths and investigating more heights?

A conference will be held by Flood & Coast in Telford on 28 -30 March.
