The project is a part of the EU Danube Region Strategy (DRS) and aims to develop a uniform methodology for calculating the risk of flooding and the level of vulnerability of territories along the Danube in the eight participating countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Croatia and Serbia and to create maps of the danger and risk. The project includes the elaboration of a Digital Terrain Model and a Digital Surface Model by Airborne Laser Scanning as well as an elaboration of orthophotos with a resolution of 40 cm of the flood plains of the Bulgarian bank of the Danube River. The area of interest (2500 km2) was covered with a density of 3 points/m2.
