Flood Hazard Classification Modeling
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Jackie Contreras, Shane Willard
We will present a process to complete a Flood Hazard Model in ArcGIS. The model will combine depths and velocities to determine flood hazards to create one boundary depicting three hazard zones (Low, Judgment, and High). This process assists in determining the hazard level of a given dam with respect to the impacts of a potential dam failure on the downstream residents by quickly depicting this information in a visually relevant format accessible to first responders and downstream residents.
