The challenge

Flood prediction relies on knowing how high each and every spot within a country, region or city is. The better the so called “elevation data”, the better the prediction and the more people and assets can be protected from flooding events. Unfortunately, the time and price for creating this data increases as well, which is why most developing countries can’t afford accurate and recent datasets.

The solution

All4Elevation wants to change this by providing accurate and affordable elevation data through combining smartphones, satellite navigation and the power of the crowd. We are developing an application which allows to turn smartphones into “smart sensors” being able to conduct elevation measurements! To gather the data and further enrich it in our global database, All4Elevation is working with local implementation partners and integrate into existing mobile ecosystems to reach as many phones as possible. The collected and improved data is offered as a service to public and private organisations with a pricing model accounting for the accuracy, timeliness and application of the data.
