Abstract

This project developed a 3D virtual reality model to simulate the flooding of an urban space in real time. Showing how a built-up area is likely to flood can help emergency services, local governments and community leaders to consider how a flood might unfold in their local area, helping them to be better prepared for future contingencies in the event of extreme weather. The project took as its basis the town of Ballater, and used available data to construct a 3D virtual reality model of the effects of Storm Frank over 2015-16 on the town. Findings from social science research carried out at the start of the project were used to feed stakeholders’ information requirements—and lessons learned from the 2015-16 events—into the development of the model, and a feedback session was held in Ballater to shape the direction for future collaboration.
