The Survey tab summarises data collected to complete the flood study. The Survey tab can record two types of required input: Terrain Surveys and Floor Surveys. Survey data is generally not captured in a consistent way across different flood studies, and rarely is there a detailed section relating to it in older studies. The information that this tab seeks to record is best found by key word searches for example "survey", "terrain", "cross-section", "LiDAR", "floor", and "conducted". Floor survey data can often be found or referred to in the sections of the report focused on damage assessment in sentences similar to "A floor survey was conducted by/in […] for the purposes of evaluating the amount of inundation above floor height".

Details of the two survey types are set out in the following pages:
