Toelichting (Engels) This dissertation aims to determine the potential of crowdsourcing and open data sources to provide key information about the timing, location, and extent of urban flooding incidents. The employed methods combine techniques from geographic information systems, graph theory, community ecology, and computer vision. Three research questions are tackled in chapters 2, 3, and 4. Chapter 2 statistically analyzes whether overland flow-paths constrain the spatial distribution of flood incidents in the case of a delta city, characterized by small ground level variations. Chapter 3 evaluates to which degree openly available spatial datasets, including environmental and socioeconomic information, explain the occurrence of flood incident reports by using exploratory data analysis. Chapter 4 assesses the potential of mainstream image and video recording, and well-known and accessible computer vision tools, to deliver key information about localized urban flooding incidents.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
