Abstract: The presented paper will focus on flood risk mapping on the territory of Svilengrad municipality, where Maritza River and its feeders are causing huge flood events during the spring season. The high wave evaluation and its implementation in the web-GIS tool, part of the Smart Water project supported under DG 'ECHO' call for prevention and preparedness, will give illustration of the first attempts of application of INSPIRE directive on the Bulgarin-Turkish-Greek border zone.
