Floodlines App, for iPhone and iPad, uses extensive flood map data to provide you with new 3D perspectives of the Brisbane River, surrounding suburbs and rising waters during the devastating Queensland floods of 2010/11.

Using cutting edge augmented reality technology this App allows you to see the flood waters rise from 2D to new 3D aerial perspectives and simulate the flooding across the Brisbane CBD and surrounding areas. The app extends exhibition visitors understanding of the power of technology to visualise and share information.

Designed for use on Augmented Reflections feature within the Floodlines exhibition at State Library of Queensland.

Features include:

• Transforms 2D images into 3D views of the rising flood waters
• Allows you to simulate flood waters across Brisbane CBD and surrounding suburbs
• Kids scavenger hunt to locate items within the flood
• At home, use the App with maps collected from the Floodlines exhibition or download from the State Library of Queensland Floodlines website

Ratings and Reviews



Interview with helicopter pilot is touching, heartwarming. Brilliant idea to honour heroes and acknowledge this tragedy in this way.

Disappointed 3GS user


Pity this app is not compatible with 3GS - there's still a lot of apps that are still being made to suit 3GS. I'm sure there will be a lot of people that don't have the most up to date iphone that would have liked to use this app. I have tried it with an ipad which it proves to be pretty good though. I would have given it a better rating had it been made available for 3GS as well - you're reducing your viewers guys :(



This is singlehandedly the most interesting and advanced app I have ever used, and it works flawlessly! Definitely a must to download. Even though it is on a touchy event from last year, it is very informative, just with imagery. You won't be disappointed downloading this.
