NZ FloodMap

The full picture of flood risk throughout New Zealand

Better understand potential flood impact with NZ FloodMap

Compatible with most GIS systems*, including CoreLogic’s BaseMaps, NZ FloodMap is designed to provide a consistent spatial view of flood risk across New Zealand, for both large areas and individual properties.

Modelling covers 100% of NZ, with 70% of properties at 5m urban resolution, modelled using LiDAR when available, and 8m grid resolution in rural regions .

Helps with understanding flood risk from all the major types of flooding, which can be viewed individually or in combination over different return periods.

Flood defences are incorporated for over 35,000 properties, designed to provide a more holistic view of risk for properties in New Zealand.

Have the ability to use NZ FloodMap in conjunction with other datasets, including your own, or with CoreLogic BaseMaps  to help visualise real world impact.
