FloodCitiSense, as a part of the ENSUF call, was active between 2017-2020. The project, focusing on monitoring of rainfall, flooding and early warning signs to enable citizens to be better prepared, has produced an infographic website to showcase the visual story about our international citizen science project on urban pluvial floods. You can visit the website by clicking here.
Along with the infographic website, along with several public deliverables, The FloodCitiSense project has produced a mobile application is used to report pluvial flooding. Citizens select the rainfall and flooding types, and take a picture or a video. Reports can be viewed on a map along with rainfall from official rain guages and FloodCitiSense rainfall sensors. The mobile app can be downloaded from the Google PlayStore or the Apple AppStore.
The FloodCitiSense web application provides the same functionality as the mobile app but is accessed via a web browser.
Citizens will be 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.
