We use satellites and AI to track floods in near real-time anywhere on earth to insure risk and save lives.
The Global Flood database
The world’s largest collection of flood maps
Our free Global Flood Database offers a comprehensive view of flood exposure around the world. This database combines 15 years of data on 913 floods with human settlement maps across 169 countries to help scientists, governments, and financial institutions better prepare and protect against the risks of flooding. Explore the library used for our groundbreaking research in Nature and download any map at 250 meter resolution.
Our enterprise platform delivers critical insights about the extent and impact of flood events. Built for practitioners who need to understand and respond to flooding, our analytical engine provides a high-resolution (down to 30cm) and near real-time picture anywhere on earth—including populations at risk, impaired roads and infrastructure, and property and agricultural damage. The customizable Cloud to Street platforms allows professionals to make better decisions in complex, rapidly evolving situations: whether protecting an entire country or assessing risk for a single factory.
Flood Response product. Track floods in near real-time, monitor any local population or property, and get live alerts when they are impacted.
Risk analytics. Access highly-accurate flood risk assessments without ground data.
Map your own flood (alpha). Simply select your dates and generate the map and info you need. Join the waitlist to be the first to get this product.
Better understand and underwrite flood risk, monitor and react to flood events as they evolve, and prioritize claims by severity and potential fraud. We enable insurers to price premiums more accurately and use objective flood data to validate and trigger claims payments. Our insurance solutions team structures custom parametric products.

Willis Towers Watson
Prior to working with Cloud to Street, the reinsurance brand of Willis Towers Watson (WillisRe) did not have the data to offer flood insurance to Indonesians living outside major urban centers. Using the Cloud to Street flood analytics platform, Willis identified and developed flood insurance for new people and assets across the country.
"Cloud to Street enabled us to leverage this new type of data in the most efficient way and develop a new insurance model in Southeast Asia."

Republic of the Congo
Over 3 years, our products enabled Republic of the Congo government to quickly identify floods in days instead of weeks, relocate 7,000 refugees at risk, secure millions in emergency aid, and target relief to over 250,000 people during major emergencies.
"The Cloud to Street dashboard... provided the infrastructure to detect and respond more quickly to floods that previously did not exist."
Director of Prevention and Risk Reduction to Catastrophe Republic of the Congo
We are the scientific standard
We fuse together a global network of optical and radar satellites to monitor floods anywhere on earth. Our industry-leading algorithms smooth out difficult terrain and eliminate clouds to see the floods below.
Ground Truth Observations
Traditional flood maps use hydrology models and simulations to predict flood risk. We directly observe floods without ground equipment to measure risk better than traditional models for frequent flood events.
We monitor and analyze flooding events as they unfold. By combining daily satellite observations with high-frequency precipitation and ground data, we pinpoint flooded areas and whether things are getting better or worse.
