Fluvial flood inundation layers from the GLOFRIS global flood model. Flood inundation maps were provided for 8 return periods between 5yr and 1000yr. The unit of the data is inundation depth in meters. The data resolution is 30 arc seconds (approximately 1km at the equator). The data are provided in GeoTIFF raster file format ‘.tif’, with the geographic projection EPSG:4326 WGS84.
