FLOODSS: Iowa flood information system as a generalized flood cyberinfrastructure

This article presents the vision, implementation, and case studies of the Iowa Flood Information System (IFIS) towards the vision for next-generation decision support systems for flooding. The IFIS is an end-to-end web-based platform that incorporates various aspects of the decision-making process for flood risk management and mitigation for the State of Iowa. The IFIS provides real-time information on streams and weather conditions, incorporates advanced hydrological models for flood prediction and mapping, and several data analytics and visualization tools to support effective decision-making process.
