Interactive map viewers and data visualisations
The Project challenge
The EFAS project presented COMMpla with the opportunity to consolidate its expertise in GIS applications, integrating a Django backend of a MapViewer, developed in Angular, into a Drupal 8 portal. The operational launch of the EFAS-IS Visualisation Platform took place in 2019. Since then, the platform has undergone new releases, featuring improvements to enhance the service and user journey, responding to feedback from JRC and CEMS-Flood users.
EFAS provides information on ongoing and forecasted floods in Europe. The MapViewer allows navigation, providing a set of data tools allowing users to search across multiple datasets or within a single dataset and compare different datasets, animate the map series, etc.
The MapViewer is one of the core tools used by forecasters to browse geospatial datasets, predict potential floods across Europe and send alert messages to basin authorities.
