The flood simulations were featured extensively on Australian and International media. The videos supplied residents, business owners and the public with realistic representations of the predicted flood event.
The flood simulation was based on accurate geospatial terrain data created by AAM. AAM provides Engineers and Planners with photo realistic 3D City Models and highly accurate terrain models to aid in their assessment and design tasks.
AAM General Manager, Brian Nicholls, says that he hopes that AAM’s simulationshelp in some way to communicate the scale and extent of the flooding. “We hope that the recent events in Queensland will prompt greater consideration to be given to highresolution mapping, which can then be used to help manage future flood events in manyareas of Australia at risk.”
The videos are accessible on YouTube or the AAM Website. They continue to befeatured on Australian and International media.
