Becoming a Flood-Resilient Region: StormSense meets Data Science

2018 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award Winner by the City of Virginia Beach, VA for the Alliance for Innovation

Apr 11, 2018

The City of Virginia Beach is proactively engaged in applying data science and artificial intelligence to: 1) create historic, current, and future data analysis platforms, 2) address flood-related issues caused by hurricanes and nor'easters, and 3) empower citizens to better manage their flood risk in enterprising new ways. 8 Cities in the Hampton Roads region formed an action cluster to participate in NIST's Global City Teams Challenge to densify a presently-sparse network of water level sensors to enhance real-time predictions made by the VA Institute of Marine Science (VIMS).
