The progressing climatic changes confront mankind with enormous challenges. A serious consequence of global warming are weather changes, resulting in the occurrence of more flash floods and heavy rainfall events in the future, among other things. In order to protect the population and infrastructure as best as possible from catastrophic damage, the state of Baden-Württemberg is placing great emphasis on municipal heavy rainfall risk management. In order to ensure the highest quality of heavy rainfall hazard maps for the whole state, a standard reference procedure has been developed that assesses and certifies the quality requirements of engineering offices with regard to hazard analyses and heavy rainfall hazard maps.
The German engineering firm Dahlem has been an expert in the field of heavy rainfall risk management for more than 15 years. For the project "Determination of Heavy Rain Hazard Maps", in which simulation models for heavy rainfall were created using the VRVis software Visdom, Dahlem has now again received the quality certificate of the standard reference procedure "Heavy Rain Hazard Maps".
This certification is important proof that Visdom is a reliable flood simulation tool with which all work and calculation steps on the way to accurate heavy rain hazard maps can be successfully carried out.
The range of applications for the VRVis simulation software goes far beyond the mere creation of heavy rainfall hazard maps. With its split-second simulation calculations and interactive 3D visualizations, Visdom is a versatile tool for sustainable digital planning, both for effective disaster management and in the increasingly important water-sensitive design of cities, regions, and infrastructure.
