Using Cloud-Based Property Flood Risk Information – The Greater Shepparton Flood Report Portal

The Shepparton Mooroopna Flood Report Portal is now live.

A cost effective, accessible approach linking to official data sources in real time.

The Shepparton Mooroopna Flood Portal, developed within the cloud based HydroNET platform, securely connects to official flood and property datasets at source, enabling the public to view flood maps and download the latest property specific flood information, generated on-the-fly when requested, has recently been amended and upgraded. These amendments include:

  • Information Icons to assist with understanding the functionality.
  • An updated Splash Screen on entry into the portal.
  • Automatic display of the 1% AEP flood map on entry.
  • Property reports now include red highlights when flooding is above floor level.
  • Other cosmetic enhancements.

The latest official data is always linked to and used at time of request, keeping the information provided up to date into the future. The portal significantly reduces the time and cost burden on staff while improving the accessibility to the public. The cloud based approach provides the added benefits of cost efficiency, ease of access from anywhere and anytime, upgradeability, reliability and scalability.

The Australian Water School recently hosted a webinar on this portal.
