MAP Rain – Helping to monitor and predict flooding events

MAP Rain is our high performance, flexible and scalable cloud-based solution for rainfall and flood monitoring analytics.  MAP Rain delivers location specific rainfall analytics for any point and any area of interest.

  • Monitor actual and predicted rainfall at any location and receive e-mail alerts for any high values

  • Calculate Rainfall Return Periods (FEH99 and Bilham) for any historic, or forecast, rain event

  • Calculate historic rainfall calculations i.e. Antecedent Precipitation Index API

  • Apply simplified hydraulic models to any catchment to predict the impact that rainfall will have on that catchment

  • Create your own catchment polygon (s), or store existing ones, and access historic aggregated rainfall for that catchment

  • Connect to the simple Flood Monitoring Dashboard directly from any monitored point

  • Display river level and rain gauge data from Environment Agency gauging stations

  • Combine real time radar and forecast rainfall into one dataset – so all calculations use both historic and forecast rainfall

  • Radar rainfall data is ground truthed against rain gauge data and dynamically adjusted as new radar data is imported

  • Readily integrates with packages like R allowing users to carry out complex rainfall analytics outside of MAP Rain

  • Now available for the whole of the UK
