Data Mining the Environment

The BBC is reporting the UK's Environment Agency decision to put its flood data online. Funnily enough the site is now totally choked, presumably with just about everyone in the UK plugging their postcode into the search engine to try and find out whether they're at risk from flooding or not.

Once the inital rush has calmed down the form below should allow you to grab the flood data without having to navigate your way through the Environment Agency's site. All the maps retrieved by this service are subject to Crown Copyright.
