Join our expert presenters who will demonstrate powerful new tools that can help automate flood assessments and modelling. Using satellite imagery or aerial photography, these tools can aid the process of delineating features for building flood models or quantifying impacts for flood assessments.

Witness how experts undertook a rapid assessment of Ukraine's recent Karkhovka Dam breach using powerful geospatial tools to provide predictions of upstream and downstream impacts. Our presenters will also demonstrate how a rapid assessment of the devastating 2022 floods in Pakistan was conducted by the United Nations.

Discover how emerging GIS plugins can be applied to map areas with needs, provide simulations of the events that occurred, and help to prevent flood-related loss of life and resources in the future. The presentation will also include a live demonstration of MetaAI's Segment Anything tool for flood mapping applications and model input data preparation. Following the presentations, our live, interactive panel discussion will address the future of harnessing AI technology to predict and assess flood impacts more efficiently.
