FloodRisk: a QGIS plugin for flood consequences estimation

Si presenta un tool software, denominato FloodRik e sviluppato in ambiente Quantum GIS, per la stima delle conseguenze in termini di popolazione coinvolta, perdite di vite e danni economici diretti derivanti da eventi di inondazione.

In times of increasing disaster losses, the reduction (or mitigation) of consequences of natural hazard needs to be effective and efficient. An in-depth understanding of the effects of disasters, is required in order to develop forms of sustainable risk management as well as risk mitigation and adaptation strategies (Directive 2007/60/CE; IPCC, 2012) .

This is especially true given the limited financial resources available.In this context, we developed a prototype tool: FloodRisk , a QGIS plugin that provides the assessment of flood consequences, in terms of loss of life and direct economic damages. The proposed cost assessment tool aims to be used for decision support systems and policy development of risk management.
