queensland flood

Australia is once again experiencing flooding and it is expected that flooding will result in nearly $1 billion of damage. Although waters have receded in some places, more rains are expected over the next few days and it is anticipated that more flooding is a possibility. Geospatial technologies are uniquely poised to aid with supporting emergency services for this disaster event and National Flood Warning Information is currently available. 

Several company’s in the region are involved and providing flood related and emergency services. Aerometrix is now providing high resolution photogrammetry to meet the challenge. ABC has published a Flood Crisis Map. Last year, 3Tier company noted that a solar anomaly correlated with Australian flooding, and as is being reported at the present time, another large solar anomaly is taking place.

In addition, the Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) has been developed to support work involvign modeling of watersheds and hydrological areas. Those interested in downloading hydrological data can find it online. Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite images began publishing a few weeks ago as floods began. 

Current Queensland Flood Information is available for the present situation.
