QGIS FLO-2D Integration

9 pagesPublished: September 20, 2018


Cities and agencies worldwide are predicting complex urban flooding by simulating the exchange between the surface water and storm drain system with the FLO-2D model. The FLO-2D modeling system is now supported by the robust pre- and post-processor tools in the Quantum Graphical Information Systems (QGIS) geographic information software. The QGIS tool prepares the FLO-2D data base that includes analyzing and editing spatial information as well as exporting detailed and high-resolution flood hazard maps. This paper outlines the resources and modeling tools available to engineers in an open source and free cross platform geographic information tool that supports the viewing, creation and editing of the spatial and tabular data as well as graphical and mapping output. This paper discusses the features of this unique, free, efficient and comprehensive data processing tool. A case study for the application of the QGIS tool for a FLO-2D urban project is presented.

Keyphrases: QGIS, spatial data, urban flood modelling
