Floodplain restoration should be based on scientific evidence. Danube Floodplain Geographical Information System (Danube Floodplain GIS) has been developed within the Danube Floodplain project and examined active and potential floodplain areas in the Danube River Basin. It is a scientific-based decision-support tool providing valuation of floodplains for preserving and restoring floodplains. It demonstrates the effects of management decision on different floodplain characteristics, related ecosystem services, and societal benefits.
The Danube Floodplain GIS (http://www.geo.u-szeged.hu/dfgis) stores the spatial results of the activities in the Danube Floodplain project. The web interface can be used to browse the results of the analysis on the active, potential, and former floodplains along the Danube and selected tributaries and pilot areas. The third webinar of the project will show you how to browse the data in the Danube Floodplain GIS and how to download the data for further processing in the open-source GIS QGIS.
Join the 3rd Danube Floodplain webinar on 19 November how to use Danube Floodplain GIS to support your decision making.
