#FloodHack – Help improve the Global Flood Awareness System

Are you interested in global flood forecasting? Are you a good code hacker? Or perhaps a bit of both? Then maybe a Hackathon would be something for you? On the 16-17 January ECMWF invites everybody interested in improving the Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS) to a weekend of hacking.

Flood, man sits on the roof

During the event we will improve the usability of the system as well as making use of new data sources and developing the system’s functionality. The event is free for everyone and we will provide food and snacks during the event. The best innovations will be awarded prices on Sunday afternoon by our invited judges, and everyone will receive a T-Shirt as a memento.
