Visdom is the ultimate decision support tool to prevent the consequences of extreme weather events in advance or to quickly evaluate what needs to be done in an emergency. In addition, Visdom is becoming more and more recognized as the go-to decision support tool also in the field of flood-sensitive urban design, where new concepts such as Sponge City and Blue-Green Infrastructure are aiming to prepare urban structures to face the consequences of the climate crisis.
Key software features:
Visdom creates a digital twin in the hydrodynamic modeling process, automatically incorporating a range of different data and data sources:
Stadtentwässerungsbetriebe Köln, Hamburg Wasser, Oldenburgisch-ostfriesischer Wasserverband, Dahlem, Ministerium für Klimaschutz, Umwelt, Energie und Mobilität Rheinland-Pfalz (MKUEM), Bundesministerium für Landwirtschaft, Regionen und Tourismus (BMLRT), Österreichischer Versicherungsverband, DHI Group, Henning Larsen, RIOCOM – Ingenieurbüro für Kulturtechnik und Wasserwirtschaft DI Albert Schwingshandl, Dr. Pecher AG, University of Copenhagen/Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management
The simulation software Visdom is the bearer of the quality certificate of the standard reference procedure "heavy rain hazard maps" of the German federal state Baden-Württemberg and thus fulfills all quality requirements for the creation of hazard analyses and heavy rain hazard maps of the German federal state.
We cooperate with domestic and foreign corporate partners in basic research projects, but also in application-oriented projects. Licensing information as well as information on cooperation in a joint research project with Visdom is available on request. Please contact us!
