Short summary
Pluvial flash floods are a growing hazard in urban areas but the lack of appropriate data collection methods hinders the improvement of flood risk mapping and early warning systems. In the floodX project, 22 controlled urban flash floods were generated in a flood response training facility and monitored with state-of-the-art sensors complemented with standard surveillance cameras. The data can be used to explore vision-based monitoring concepts and flood model calibration strategies.
