Data Entry

The Australian Flood Studies Database (AFSD) is the main catalogue of flood information available through the Australian Flood Information Portal (the portal). The portal is focussed on providing access to flood information from authoritative sources. Information in the portal can be searched and accessed by all users, but only registered users can add flood studies and associated maps to the database.

A registered user would typically have been responsible for the creation or publication of flood hazard information, and might include state authorities, local councils, consultants and authorised data custodians.
