In this paper a new approach to the creation of short-term forecasting systems of river flooding is being further developed. It provides highly accurate forecasting results due to operative obtaining and integrated processing of the remote sensing and ground-based water flow data in real time. Forecasting of flood areas and depths is performed on a time interval of 12–48 h to be able to perform the necessary steps to alert and evacuate the population. Forecast results are available as web services. The proposed system extends the traditional separate methods based on satellite monitoring or modeling of a river’s physical processes, by using an interdisciplinary approach, integration of different models and technologies, and through intelligent choice of the most suitable models for a flood forecasting.
