Flood Management with VertiGIS - How the City of Austin Automated Public Access to Floodplain Data
Spatial data in the hands of people when they need it most: With VertiGIS technology, the City of Austin, TX built a web-based GIS application that allows the public to retrieve property-specific floodplain data and download supporting models.

Municipal departments across the world that are responsible for managing floodplain data reached a crossroads: either hire more staff or build a public-facing web application to automate the distribution of floodplain-related information. These municipalities need a solution that is stable and well-supported for the foreseeable future. It needs to be web-based, work on mobile devices, and have an easy-to-use interface.

With VertiGIS you can build public-facing web-GIS applications for floods and other emergencies. Since launching FloodPro in 2015, the city of Austin has seen some great benefits:
  • FloodPro enables the city to monitor the number of floodplain information reports and models downloaded - on average 2,000-3,000 activities per month.
  • By automating these tasks, Austin has freed up staff time equivalent to 1.5 full-time employees to focus on other critical projects.
