    Can I Download Large Areas Of Risk of Flooding from Surface Water Data?


     Currently, the open data portal only enables Risk of Flooding from Surface Water (ROFSW) data to be downloaded one tile at a time. The portal is unable to deal with large data requests.

     There is no option of bulk download all layers within an Area Of Interest (AOI).

     To order an offline supply of ROSFW data, make a request using the "Submit Feedback/Report an issue" option on this forum.

      Hi Ella,

      How often are the ROFSW layers updated?
      Would it be possible to make them available via WFS?

      Hi Daniel,

      The RoFSW data is updated irregularly. We are currently working on the next update which we expect to publish soon. This will be announced here: https://support.environment.data.gov.uk/hc/en-gb/articles/360000908738-Environment-Agency-datasets

      We will consider making them available via WFS, but this will probably happen after the update.
