Flood Management

Flood Inundation Modeling
Effective floodplain management is a combination of corrective and preventative measures for reducing flood damage. These measures require integrating data from a variety of sources including zoning, subdivision, or building requirements, and special-purpose floodplain ordinances.

ArcGIS Spatial Analyst contains specialized tools for working with and deriving new information from hydrologic and landscape information. You can use these tools to generate a flood forecasting model to identify affected parcels to prioritize for remediation or damage assessment.

Arc Hydro tools have been developed for ArcGIS as an effective means for capturing the 3D nature of a channel: physical properties, terrain modeling, riverbed characteristics, vegetation, etc.

With ArcGIS Tracking Analyst, you can analyze time-related data as well as explore trends and phenomena; conduct historical analysis and “what–if” scenarios; and track and monitor events such as excessive rainfall, track water levels, etc.
