Screening of Vulnerability to Cloudburst Flooding - Elevation Models
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Linda Bredahl
Climate change causes heavier rain events in Denmark and problems with subsequent drainage of the terrain in urban areas. To assess how vulnerable an area is to flooding we analyse the hydrological conditions of the terrain using Model Builder. Various methods are used depending on the project area, its characteristics and purpose for each project, all involving Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst. Terrain regulation is done, using ArcGIS tools, to create urban areas and climate resilient cities.
