MIKE Flood Screener

A cloud application for screening of flood prone areas from accumulated rainfall and sea level variations.


MIKE Flood Screener calculates inundation maps from a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), user-defined rainfall amounts and sea elevation as key input. MIKE Flood Screener is the application for you if you wish to:

Make a rapid, overall assessment of potential, local flooding in the planning phase of your project

Identify areas prone to flooding with estimates of flood extent and flood volumes during an event

Make an initial assessment of the effect of proposed physical flood protection or mitigation measures like flood walls, diversion channels or collection ponds.

Identify flood areas of interest, which may require additional analysis with higher accuracy, fully dynamic flood modelling prior to final decision making.

Key features

MIKE Flood Screener helps you analyse and identify flood prone areas from an efficient and rapid screening simulation methodology.

Minimum input, rapid screening results

You need only a Digital Elevation Model from your project area and minimum model input parameters to obtain your first flood screening results.

Rainfall induced flood screening

Rapid overview of areas in risk of being inundated from rain events with accumulated, effective rainfall amount as input for the entire model domain.

Coastal flooding from sea level variations

Predictions of flood extents from rising sea levels on low-lying, coastal regions can be easily assessed from flood screener simulations.

Flood extent and flood water volumes

Flood screening results includes the flood extent in affected areas with flood water volumes – all vital input in the flooding analysis and planning phase.

Flood management and protection measures

Investigate the potential efficiency of structural flood management or protection measures by adding flood walls, diversion channels, new buildings or storage ponds to the surface elevation model.

Surface profiles and flood elevations

Analyse the surface characteristics and water depths in a longitudinal profile for enhanced understanding of local flooding impacts from different rainfall amounts.

Screening results

Screening results include maps of water depths, flow path indicators for surface water routing as well as updated surface elevation models with manual defined flood prevention features.

Visualisation and post processing

Animate flooding from varying rainfall in MIKE Flood Screener, visualise results in Google Earth or export data and screening results for external post-processing.

Compatible with other MIKE products

Use exported flood screener results or elevation models in DHI’s more accurate, fully dynamic MIKE flood modelling packages for conscious final decision making.
