This document states that recent advances in technology make the creation and dissemination of flood risk information very accessible and achievable for even modest sized agencies. It further asserts that many of the datasets may already exist in a format that is suitable for use in flood related location intelligence, can be combined with flood model results and supplemented by any additional information that may add value to the process - such as lidar. A trained analyst is said to be able to produce results in a rapid manner that form a valuable foundation for decision support on how to best build and sustain community resilience for future flood events.
