... the map is our territory
Um, no. Flood risk is rather more complicated than that.
Yes, great idea, but some fundamentals are missing:- A 90m grid of elevation data doesn't allow you to model flood, period;- Water doesn't rise uniformly, it rises in a complicated fashion based on water flow, width of the river, bends in the river, local topography, soil saturation etc...E.g. the Jan 2011 Brisbane floods recorded the following river gauge heights, all at the same time, going up the river: 2.5m, 4.5m, 9m, 18m.
Could you guys raise this flood map from 800 meters to 2000 meters so that I can use this flood map to keep track of the global flood in Baxter's Book Flood which is a book that is a prequel to the movie Waterworld. I would really like to use this to see what would be the last piece of dry land left.
That would be great. I happen to be reading Baxter's Ark at the moment which is also about the world being completely submerged by rising sea levels.
