Iowa Flooded on Google Maps

Iowa City Inundation Map

The University of Iowa has used Google Maps to create a number of flood inundation maps for Iowa. So far they have created maps for Iowa City, Waterloo and Charles City.

Users of the map can use a slide-control to adjust the river’s flow and height and view the predicted flood effect directly on the map. The maps also include a risk calculator that allows you to calculate the risk of specific areas being flooded.
