New standards have been developed within OGC Testbed 11, defining how geo information should be represented across different areas and spatial resolutions.
Work carried out on different DEMs has also been used to demonstrate the importance of the terrain model in developing better flood models, and used as evidence to call for better data to be made available.
Finally, the algorithms developed as part of the Google project allow coarser resolution flood model output to be downscaled on to finer resolution grids almost instantaneously inside the latest Google platforms.
// RSS is a commercial R&D company operating in the fields of radar systems and applied sciences. We work with SSBN on a number of projects involving their high-end flood modelling expertise. We are pleased and excited to be working with them. Amongst other work, they assist us on OGC projects, several NASA-funded projects and work with Google Inc. //
