Taking the learning from the pilot study, the climate change impact mapping data will be tested across a wide geography to demonstrate the benefits, both known and not yet known, against a network of assets. This stage of delivering climate change impact mapping will test the solution to demonstrate the prototype in a fully operational environment, with testing and development proving the product works in its final form and under expected conditions. The project scope intends to:
1. Develop the modelling output for the whole WWU network geography;
2. Develop case studies to share the learning of using the data via multiple engagement avenues, including the Smarter Networks Portal; and to
3. Feed back to the Smarter Networks Portal at the closure of the project
The themes will be made available as data layers in a variety of formats to allow easy integration with existing Geographical Information Systems and straightforward commencement of understanding risk, developing a maintenance strategy and delivering timely intervention to existing assets. Additionally, the data will allow, thorough planning, to future-proof new assets against climate impacts.
