However, these methods up to now can hardly be adapted to a large scale because of lacking high resolution

To overcome this obstacle, the paper presents, first, 5 a conceptual framework for understanding physical flood susceptibility of buildings; and second, a methodological framework for its analysis. The latter ranges from automatic extraction of buildings mainly from remote sensing with their subsequent classification and characterisation to a systematic physical flood susceptibility assessment. The work shows the results of implementation and testing a respective methodology in a district 10 of the city of Magangué, Magdalena River Colombia.
