Queensland Flood Mapping Program
The Queensland Flood Mapping Program (QFMP) provides flood mapping information to councils and the local community. This assists in mitigating, preparing, responding and recovering from flood disasters across the state.
The program has been funded by the Community Resilience Program, provided by the Queensland and Australian Government to improve the economic and community resilience.
To deliver the program, the QFMP team works closely with council staff, local communities, hydrologists, land use planning and emergency management groups to ensure the mapping products meet the needs of all stakeholders.
Flood mapping provided by QFMP has already been successfully used to support decision making during and after flood events, as recently as Cyclone Ita in 2014.
