2.         For the APSFR a more detailed analysis is made, starting with two series of flood maps ready by the end of 2013 at the latest. The flood hazard maps describe the physical aspects of the flood such as the extend of the flood, water depth, flow velocity etc. for events with a high, medium (at least 1% annual probability) and low probability of occurrence. For each of these events actual flood risk maps are developed, indication the impact and consequences of these floods. Not only people (victims, evacuated and affected persons etc.) and economic consequences are taken into account, but the EU Floods Directive explicitly mentions ecological impacts and consequences for cultural heritage as well. These maps are the knowledge base for the third step
