Project result: The FloodCitiSense app for pluvial flooding

With the FloodCitiSense app, one can easily create their own rain or flood report and contribute to flood forecasting for research purposes and better urban management. The FloodCitiSense project is supported in the JPI Urban Europe ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures Call (ENSUF).

FloodCitiSense develops an urban pluvial flood early warning service for and by citizens and city authorities. This service will reduce the vulnerability of urban areas and citizens to pluvial floods, which cause serious damage to the urban environment. In FloodCitiSense citizens are actively involved in the monitoring of rainfall and flooding, making use of low-cost sensors and web-based technologies. The early warning service will enable ‘citizens and cities’ to be better prepared and to better respond to urban pluvial floods. FloodCitiSense targets a co-creation of this innovative public service in an urban living lab context with all actors.
