DamaGIS C. Saint-Martin

Short summary
DamaGIS is a GIS database which aims to collect and assess the severity of flood-related damage. The reason for creating this database is the lack of precise damage data available to calibrate and validate flood risk assessment models. To this end, DamaGIS offers highly precise and easily accessible flood-related damage data. It uses multiple sources such as social networks. Since 2011, 729 damages caused by 23 flood events in the south of France have been reported within the database.
