Creating better flood resiliency with waterRIDE CLOUD

Did you know, flood events have increased by more than 50 percent over the past decade? It's also found that they’re occurring at a rate four times higher than in 1980. Floods can be devastating for a community. They threaten lives, inundate properties and businesses, and cause damage to vital infrastructure.

So, how can you prepare your community or business from the threat of a flood? Particularly when flood and extreme weather events aren’t slowing down any time soon, and we’re living in a world where more of us are working remotely.

Introducing waterRIDE CLOUD

waterRIDETM is part of Advisian Digital’s suite of sustainability, resilience and mitigation products, built to help communities and businesses plan for and manage flood events. For over 15 years, it has helped more than 250 organizations across government, insurance, and energy and resources understand the impacts of a flood without needing to be a flood modeler.

"Because flood datasets are centralized in waterRIDE CLOUD, it’s now faster to spread critical information among stakeholders and communities so they can prepare and evacuate before flooding occurs."

The beauty of waterRIDE is in its simplicity. It allows users to not only understand which areas will be inundated and when, but what assets and infrastructure will be impacted.

Now we’re taking waterRIDE a step further with waterRIDE CLOUD. To help you address the critical issue of flood data management and distribution. And to provide better flood resiliency wherever you choose to work.

It’s waterRIDE, but on the cloud

By taking our classic waterRIDE platform to the cloud, users can now securely distribute and manage their flood information from one place. Whether they’re a waterRIDE user or not, they can easily upload and work with existing flood datasets on any device, making waterRIDE CLOUD easy to use remotely and to maintain connectivity.

This means flood information and insights can be shared with stakeholders directly from waterRIDE CLOUD, creating a more resilient and agile flood management system, scope for centralized data management and better communication.

Transform the way floods are handled

Simple data sharing with waterRIDE CLOUD means better flood resiliency.

Because flood datasets are centralized in waterRIDE CLOUD, it’s now faster to spread critical information among stakeholders and communities so they can prepare and evacuate before flooding occurs.

Keep track of your changing datasets

With waterRIDE's managed data service, you can take care of your data yourself - or we can do it for you.

"The beauty of waterRIDE is in its simplicity. It allows users to not only understand which areas will be inundated and when, but what assets and infrastructure will be impacted."

All we need is to know when a new flood study has been completed and a link to the datasets. We then provide an automatic notification for when the updates are available on waterRIDE CLOUD.

Not everyone is an expert at data management, but with waterRIDE CLOUD you don’t need to be

Like you, the way we work has changed

In today’s climate, we all need the flexibility to work remotely. That’s why we’ve taken waterRIDE to the cloud.

See how you can access waterRIDE and manage your flood data from wherever you work by simply opening up your browser.
