HydroMT-FIAT: Automated and reproducible Delft-FIAT model building#

With the HydroMT-FIAT plugin, users can easily benefit from the rich set of tools of the HydroMT package to build and update Delft-FIAT models from available global and local data.

This plugin assists the FIAT modeller in:

  • Quickly setting up a Delft-FIAT model based on existing hazard maps, global and user-input exposure layers, and global, US national, or user-input vulnerability curves.

  • Creating a Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) based on US Census or user-input data.

  • Adjusting and updating components of a Delft-FIAT model and their associated parameters in a consistent way.

The HydroMT-FIAT plugin aims to make the FIAT model building process fast, modular, and reproducible by configuring the model building process from single yml file.
