The mapping tool contains five map layers on top of an Ordnance Survey basemap. You can swap these between 'light', 'outdoor' and 'road' or a satellite map.
You can then view on top of the base map some additional flood related maps. The locations of the murals are here too.
You can turn the maps on/off using the small boxes in the top-right corner of the map.
Further details of each map are here:

The round buttons allow you to swap between different base maps.
Zoom in and out using the plus (+) and minus (-) icons and search for a place using the text box.
When the Flood Zone 2 or the Murals map layers are on you can click on those map layers to get further information.

The 2019 2 meter Digital Terrain (LIDAR* Composite) Model (DTM) is produced by the Environment Agency. Each pixel value represents the height above sea level at the specific spatial location. Please refer to the Open Government Licence (OGLv3) for reuse. Raw data can be downloaded from www.environment.data.gov.uk.
The information provided is largely based on modelled data and is therefore indicative rather than specific. Locations may also be at risk from other sources of flooding, such as high groundwater levels, overland run off from heavy rain, or failure of infrastructure such as sewers and storm drains.
* Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is an airborne mapping technique, which uses a laser to measure the distance between the aircraft and the ground. Up to 500,000 measurements per second are made of the ground, allowing highly detailed terrain models to be generated at spatial resolutions of between 25cm and 2 metres.
The information on the Flood Map for Planning (Rivers and Sea) is designed to only give an indication of flood risk to an area of land and is not sufficiently detailed to show whether an individual property is at risk of flooding. This is because we cannot know all the details about each property.
The Flood Map for Planning (Rivers and Sea) does not provide information on flood depth, speed or volume of flow. It doesn't show flooding from other sources, such as groundwater, direct runoff from fields, or overflowing sewers.
The Flood Map for Planning (Rivers and Sea) only shows the predicted likelihood of flooding from rivers or the sea for defined areas, and is not detailed enough to account for precise addresses. Individual properties herefore may not always face the same chance of flooding as the areas that surround them.
The Environment Agency's (EA) Spatial Flood defences layer is a comprehensive and up-to-date dataset in England that shows flood defences currently owned, managed or inspected by the EA.
Flood defences can be structures, buildings or parts of buildings. Typically these are earth banks, stone and concrete walls, or sheet-piling that is used to prevent or control the extent of flooding.
A defence is any asset that provides flood defence or coastal protection functions. This includes both man-made and natural defences. Natural defences may include man-made elements to make them more effective or protect them from erosion. Normally a number of assets will be used together to manage the risk in a particular area, working in combination within a risk management system.
The Shorelines Project will see giant murals pop up across the city over the next 12 months to act as a reminder of the real risks the city faces if nothing is done.
Involving internationally renowned artists, local artists, community groups and local residents, the installations will bring the community together to imagine a future where climate change has changed the fabric of our city.
Designed to provoke a debate around the subject of climate change, the murals aim to inspire residents of Hull to stand up and fight for their city’s future.
