Who we are

FloodTags analyses online media and user generated content for water management and food security. Data sources include online news articles, blogs, forums, Twitter, Facebook public pages, and we connect to messengers such as WhatsApp and Telegram. We analyse these sources by using a mix of artificial intelligence, natural language processing and combinations with external data sources, including satellite imagery. Applications comprise real-time and historic (trend) analysis for emergency flood response, water scarcity management, water conflict resolution, integrated water management, food security and other water- and development related applications.

FloodTags believes that citizens and local communities are key resources in any social and water management problem. By listening to and anticipating on local perspectives, decision makers can take supported measures and responders have direct insight in the assistance needed on-the-ground.

Our aim: Help 100 million people by enabling engineers and managers to listen, understand and keep in touch with the situation on-the-ground.

Core Values

Knowledgeable

We study each use-case until we've reached a deep understanding of the topic. Good listening requires knowledge and attention.

Durable

What we support, lasts. We have a healthy revenue model, not dependent on on/off subsidies. Our solution is there to stay.

Motivated

We follow the energy. We work with motivated clients and fun partners, to reach effective and lasting solutions. 

We help out

We reach out and we help out. We work with the PYWC principle for those who need it, for maximum benefit.
