According to the Directive on Flood Risk Assessment and Management (2007), flood maps are already available for most of Germany's water bodies. Digitizing existing maps and linking them to other data via a data platform can create significantly greater added value for the population, as risks can be modeled much more accurately. For example, areas can be identified that are at high, medium, or low risk of flooding. If this information is made available transparently via a dashboard, it can serve as information for a municipality’s administration and residents, as well as a basis for decision-making regarding flood protection measures and precautions. In this way, digitized flood hazard maps contribute to safety and the public's trust in the administration.
