As the need to plan for flooding and manage flood alleviation schemes climbs higher on the public and private sector’s agenda, researchers from Bangor University are working with the local council to develop an advanced visual analytics tool to model the impact of land use change on river hydrology and provide valuable insights.

Researchers from the Schools of Natural Sciences and Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at Bangor University, in collaboration with Gwynedd Council’s consultancy arm Ymgynghoriaeth Gwynedd Consultancy (YGC), have developed a new decision support toolkit, the ‘Land Use Change SWAT+ Toolkit’, to help improve the planning and management of flood alleviation schemes in the University’s local county of Gwynedd, which has the potential to be rolled out further afield.
