Google Flood Hub available in Poland. What platform is this? How it works?

Google is constantly expanding its product portfolio. But apart from serving a set of novelties, it is constantly expanding its reach by adding new layers of data, thus jumping into completely new markets. Today, the online giant officially announced that their Flood Hub platform will also cover Poland!

Flood Hub hits the Polish market. What platform is this?

Platforma Flood Hub is an artificial intelligence-based tool designed to help predict flooding. The climate crisis is affecting the whole world – and the internet giant is well aware of it. That is why he is doing everything in his power to help the most vulnerable and those most in need. Flood Hub has been operating for several years, but now it is expanding its offer to several dozen more countries – and Poland is also on this substantial list.

The Flood Hub uses a variety of publicly available data sources, such as weather forecasts and satellite imagery, to predict flooding 7 days in advance.

Governments, aid organizations and individuals can use the Flood Hub to take timely action and prepare for river flooding by accessing local flood data and forecasts up to 7 days in advance.

How does the Flood Hub work? According to the creators, the platform’s algorithm is based on various publicly available sources – including Weather forecasts and satellite photos. It then connects the two models. A hydrological model that predicts the amount of water flowing in the river, and a flooding model that predicts which areas will be affected and how deep the water will be.

Not only the Internet. Hence the cooperation of Google with a whole range of institutions

During cataclysms and any problems – access to technological solutions can be significantly difficult. Google is well aware of this. Therefore, it works with organizations such as the Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the Red Cross Society of India, and the Yale University Inclusive Economy team to create offline alert networks of trained, motivated and trusted community volunteers to increase the reach of Flood Alerts hub.
