The World Resources Institute's Aqueduct Global Flood Analyzer is a web-based interactive platform that measures the impacts of river flooding; measured impacts include urban damage, affected GDP, and affected population at the country, state, and river basin scale.

The Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas aggregate scores of 12 key water indicators in 15,000 watersheds around the world. The Aqueduct Water Risk Framework classes these 12 indicators into three categories of water risk, as well as an overall aggregated score. While the Water Risk Framework is structured specifically to help companies and investors understand water-related risks to their business, the tool is useful for all audiences, including government and civil society stakeholders, to better understand geographic water issues.

To view a specific indicator, use the dropdown menu in the top left-hand corner of the map. Selecting "current conditions" or "future conditions" will bring up a list of covered indicators. Clicking on the indicator of choice will change the layer presented on the map to show that chosen data.
