The Flooding Map

The Shoothill GaugeMap is a Google Map of live UK river level data. The map allows you to view the river levels in England and Wales as measured by over 2,700 Environment Agency river level gauges.

If you select a gauge's marker on the map you can view a chart showing the river levels over the last five days. The charts are very nicely designed and indicate normal ranges, levels below the typical range and the range where flooding is possible. This allows you to quickly tell at a glance whether a river is currently below normal levels or in danger of flooding.
