We investigate the applicability of medium resolution Landsat satellite imagery for mapping temporal changes in urban land cover for direct use in urban flood models. The overarching aim is to provide accurate and cost- and resource-efficient quantification of temporal changes in risk towards the impacts of pluvial flooding. Initial results show that satellite imagery may have considerable potential in this respect.
