CBMC Group has a number of efficient software tools that allow you to increase your productivity in relation to climate change.
Most notable is our software tool for creating value maps, risk maps and optimisation of climate adaptation solutions from socio-economical perspectives. This tool is called UCAT (Urban Climate Adaptation Tool) and applicable to assesments of flooding due to extreme rainfall events as well as coastal flooding caused by storm surges and increased sea level rise.
The process of developing and updating plans for climate adaptation is
UCAT has been designed to make this process seamless and easy. It is intended for use by municipalities and utilities and do not require users to be experts in climate change, hydrology, hydraulics or economics.
By virtue of UCAT you
get a shortcut to faster, cheaper and better climate adaptation plans, and
save internal time as well as consultancy hours - and save long-term by creating better solutions.
MAPPING PROPERTY ASSETS
UCAT includes a feature that allows you to create asset value map for properties and assets you want to take into consideration. The typical information that is needed to produce asset value maps is data on:
CREATING RISK MAPS EASILY
Climate change may cause a wide range of societal challenges - from anxiety, risk management and economic damages to coastal squeeze of natural areas, damages to cultural heritage and the risk of pollution spreading.
Thus an important component in developing and maintaining plans for climate adaptation is the risk maps showing the volunaribility of the assets. The information required to create risk maps is:
OPTIMISING YOUR CLIMATE ADAPTATION SOLUTIONS
If you ever have worked with climate adaptation planning, you are only too familiar with the many options and uncertainties involved. UCAT makes use of the best available databases for climate adaptation solutions to find the most optimal solution(s) for your area of interest from a social economy optimization perspective. The information needed in finding the most optimal combination of solutions is:
