Global Integrated Flood Map: A collaborative product of the Global Flood Working Group
Abstract: 

The Integrated Global Flood Map is a demonstration of the power of combining existing systems to create added value. With increasing observation and modelling capacity, scientists are now able to produce relevant information on flood disasters more rapidly and with sufficient accuracy and precision for a variety of humanitarian response tasks. A number of prototype or pre-operational systems were integrated, each with their own shortcoming and uncertainties, but also with their strengths and uniqueness. Together, they allow analysts to get a clear situational picture of major floods in the world.
