First project completed: Web viewer for flood risk communication

— We completed the first project at SOIL: in a collaboration with Izni Mohd Zahidi from Monash University in Malaysia and the ENAC-IT4R team, we have been working on creating a public flood web viewer over the past year. The web viewer visualises flood risks in the Selangor River catchment in Malaysia. You can check it out at https://monash-flood-portal.epfl.ch/.
