SCIMAP is a diffuse / non-point pollution risk mapping tool design to identify where within a catchment the pollutants are most likely to be come from. The tool work for sediment, nutrients and microbial pollution and enables the effective targeting of mitigation measures. SCIMAP identifies the critical source areas for the pollutant by the joint consideration of the mobilisation and hydrological connectivity patterns across the landscape. The tool can use both LiDAR and drone derived detailed topographic data.
