An interactive Rhine Atlas online

August 7, 2015

Maps showing flood danger and flood risk from the Alps to the outlet into the North Sea

This atlas is a transboundary representation of flood areas of the Rhine's 1230 river kilometres during frequent, medium and rare flood events. From these maps, anybody may understand, whether his house or his plant is at risk of floods. These maps are part of an international plan on improving flood risk management in the entire Rhine catchment of some 200.000 km².
