Could my area be flooded? Are there any hospitals or evacuation routes in the flood-prone area? Should I expect soil subsidence? How many days a year will I expect heat stress in the future? The “Climate Impact Atlas” is a tool that provides insights into these kind of questions. The interactive atlas shows (future) threats of coastal and river floods, drought and heat stress on a map.
In the atlas, you can search for your municipality and have a look at what is going on in your area. Using the search option makes it possible to zoom directly to a municipality or a water board. Please, scroll down for more information.
The atlas contains national data. This means that it is only indicative and is not intended to provide information on a local level of a neighbourhood or district. However, the atlas can help to get a quick overview of what effects play (or will play) a role in your area. The aim of the atlas is to get issues related to water and climate on the agenda.
For the time being, most of the maps in the Climate Impact Atlas are based on the KNMI’06 scenario developed by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI). Only the maps that show heat stress (number of nights > 20 degrees) have already been developed using the KNMI2014 scenarios.
