IDRT releases a new Measuring, Mapping and Managing Flood Risk in Texas web tool.


IDRT recently updated and improved on our the original tool for identifying flood risk across 14 counties along the Upper Texas coast. New features include: (1) more explanation of how we are using statistical machine learning techniques to identify expected flood impacts based on parcel-level flood damage claims; (2) different return periods/probability of flood events; and (3) a comparison section that allows a user to scroll between traditional physics-based FEMA flood plain designations and our “damage-plain” approach.
