Flooding, cyclones, hailstorms, bushfires and droughts have wreaked havoc on lives, property and the natural environment. And as the climate crisis intensifies, these climate hazards will increase in frequency and severity.
To identify and mitigate the risk from flooding – Australia’s most expensive natural hazard – governments and businesses are turning to Twinn (formerly known under the Ambiental brand). By leveraging our flood data, climate risk intelligence software and domain expertise, growing numbers of Australian organisations are planning for imminent and future climate events.
Twinn solutions are available through annual recurring licences. Not only does this provide ongoing access to our dedicated support staff and technical experts, but it also means you’ll benefit from the latest updates as soon as they are released. As part of our annual update process, we use major events and customer feedback, adjusting where necessary to improve the predictive accuracy of our model.
Combining market-leading high-resolution coverage with multiple flood scenarios, Australia Flood Map is a core product that is tried, tested and trusted by the market – and one that we’re constantly updating and improving. As part of our annual upgrade process, we use major events and customer feedback, adjusting where necessary to improve the predictive accuracy of our model.
During 2022, for example, we conducted hydrological and hydraulic reviews of multiple high-risk locations, upgrading locations covered by our 30m rural modelling methodology and expanding coverage of our higher resolution 5m urban LiDAR models. Twinn has also conducted extensive research into flood defence schemes in operation across Australia.
