Sava River Basin – Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) project

Project that uses LIDAR technology to map the terrain of floodplains along the Sava River

This $850,000 project facilitated a partnership to develop a digital terrain model of floodplains along the Sava River. Using Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology to provide a precise 3D model of key areas along the waterway, the data supports activities such as hydrodynamic modeling, flood mapping, and emergency response route planning. As a result, Croatian communities are better equipped to control water flow and mitigate flooding in the region.
