3Di water management applicable for end users (HSHL3.3)

3Di Water Management has developed a new high definition water space oriented water model that allows for large scale and detailed computations and 3D realistic visualization of water in an area. Due to its rapid computations it is possible to use the model in an interactive way as a design instrument, whereby the impact of measures can be visualized within minutes, instead of days.

The Water Board and municipalities of the densely populated Hotspot Haaglanden were searching for new methods and smart solutions to deal with limited land space, long legal procedures and high investments, which are a problem for the current adaptation strategies. 3Di can help to develop and evaluate adaptation strategies. The visualization tool improves a dialogue with politicians and other stakeholders, because it shows the impact of floods and measures in a very clear, game-like environment.
