  1. as open software; every registered user can get the source code (python libraries) and use the software for free; Delft-FIAT is based on other open source libraries as GDAL and numpy;
    Delft-FIAT is available as a stand-alone executable or as a set of Python scripts
  2. optimal flexibility; users can configure and run models of any place on the earth and may use their own comfortable tools for pre-and postprocessing (basic pre-processing scripts available);
  3. optimized calculation core; large and detailed model schematizations are calculated within minutes;
  4. easy, flexible and transparent input configuration (e.g. use of Microsoft Excel);
  5. includes extendable worldwide flood impact function library;
  6. makes use of Open GIS and defacto datastandards; hydro-dynamic software output will work and input and output can be read/write in mainstream (GIS) software;
  7. to be used as stand-alone tool (expert) or suitable to run a flood impact model as a web processing service (WPS); specific users can be facilitated by dedicated interfaces;
