Ensemble flood map spatial verification [Data set] H. Hooker, S. L. Dance, D. C. Mason, J. Bevington, and K. Shelton

Short summary
Ensemble forecasts of flood inundation produce maps indicating the probability of flooding. A new approach is presented to evaluate the spatial performance of an ensemble flood map forecast by comparison against remotely observed flooding extents. This is important for understanding forecast uncertainties and improving flood forecasting systems.
