The BEYOND group has been actively involved together with partners Geoapikonisis SA, Altamira SA, and CIMA Foundation in the EMSN-046 activation launched in the framework of the EMS Risk & Recovery Activity of the Copernicus Work program. The BEYOND Center of Excellence team contributed with its know-how and expertise to the service request of Detailed flood delineation in Hildesheim (Germany), referring to the flood caused by heavy rains during the period 24-26 of July 2017. The area of interest includes the rivers Nette, Lamne, and Innerste. The generated products provided the observed and maximum flood extent in the area of interest. The key user of the map series is the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) on behalf of ‘Arbeitskreis forstlicher Fernerkundler der Lander’.
