Flood Mapp Provide Real-Time Mapping and Intelligent Flood Alerts

Floodmapp is an Australian startup that provides real-time flood mapping and intelligent flood alerts in order to improve safety and reduce flood-related damage.

The company was founded by Ryan Prosser and Juliette Murphy after they recognised that technology has the potential to mitigate the disastrous impact flooding can have on the lives of millions of people across the globe each year.

Originally operating as a hobby project both Ryan and Juliette went full time on the project in January of this year and were later accepted into the River City Labs accelerator program.

Juliette is a Chartered Professional Engineer with 10 years’ experience specialising in flood engineering and hydrology. She also has first-hand experience seeing the impact that flooding can have on the community when her friend’s houses were devastated by the Brisbane floods of 2011.
