In this paper, attention is focused on the extension of the urban flood-mapping concept from an eminently cartographic context to a three-dimensional one, by applying techniques for the representations of urban flood inundation in a virtual environment for hazard communication purposes. In particular, visual risk communication of urban flooding in 3D environments, based on terrestrial laser scanning, has been analyzed here. Moreover, a web-based rendering of point clouds for the visualization of urban flooding has been explored in order to highlight its benefits in urban flood risk communication.

Abstract

In this paper, attention is focused on the extension of the urban flood-mapping concept from an eminently cartographic context to a three-dimensional one, by applying techniques for the representations of urban flood inundation in a virtual environment for hazard communication purposes. In particular, visual risk communication of urban flooding in 3D environments, based on terrestrial laser scanning, has been analyzed here. Moreover, a web-based rendering of point clouds for the visualization of urban flooding has been explored in order to highlight its benefits in urban flood risk communication.
