Abstract. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Digital Elevation Models (DEM) can be used to perform many geospatial and hydrological modelling including drainage and watershed delineation, flood prediction and physical development studies of urban and rural by: Digital elevation models and their applications in flood risk management Katalin Bódis Dissertation supervisor: the model is Digital Terrain Model (DTM).

GIS techniques for creating river terrain models for hydrodynamic modeling and flood inudation mapping October Environmental Modelling and Software 23() A digital elevation model (DEM) is a 3D CG representation of a terrain's surface – commonly of a planet (e.g.

Earth), moon, or asteroid – created from a terrain's elevation data. A "global DEM" refers to a discrete global grid. DEMs are used often in geographic information systems, and are the most common basis for digitally produced relief maps. A mix of elevation data has been used for floodplain mapping.

Detailed studies in high flood risk areas (main rivers and stream channels) used four foot contours from land surveying (NRC, ). Approximate studies in lower risk areas used USGS digital elevation models (DEMs), a gridded raster representation of a digital terrain model (DTM.

This book presents a set of papers on Digital Terrain Modelling for Policy Support which aims to be informative and stimulating for both developers and users of digital terrain models.

It should also be useful for professi- als who are interested in the wider aspects of the applications of terrain models in support for policies and decision making. digital terrain model for use in river flood studies book Terrain analysis based on digital elevation models is being increasingly used in hydrology (e.g.

Wilson and Gallant, ). This is driven by the availability of digital elevation data, nationally from the USGS () and worldwide including space based data available from the NASA TOPSAR shuttle Size: 1MB.

The reader is asked to refer toSection of the Data Management Book for basic background information on DEMs. In the example, both software ARCGIS and. use of topographic maps in the preparatory work. Much less attention was paid to the use of a digital elevation model of the area.

The article presents the results of research done within the SOPO project on the possibility of using digital terrain model (DTM) in preparing maps. The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) For most parts of the globe, the easier to use and higher resolution SRTM terrain model is available.

It covers the area between 60°N and 60°S. It was created by radar measurements from the Space Shuttle in. Digital Elevation Data The term "DEM" (Digital Elevation Model) can refer either to a specific elevation file format, or to gridded elevation data in general.

Some people use "DTM" (Digital Terrain Model) as the more general term. The procedure is tested on the Arno River Basin by using the existing documentation of flood inundations produced by the Arno River Basin Authority for calibration and validation.

This approach is applied on 11 subcatchments with areas ranging from – 6, km 2 utilizing DEMs of different resolutions with cell sizes ranging from 20– m. The accuracy of the terrain model is comparable to high-resolution terrain data acquired through aerial photogrammetry and can be used in conjunction with the new generation of river hydraulic models capable of accepting GIS terrain data.

BPN model for flood water level modelling C. Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) The EKF algorithm has two main stages: prediction step; and update (filtering) step.

In prediction steps, previous state estimate of the system is being used and in the update step, the predicted state is. This second report broadens the analysis (NFIP) was established in to slow increasing flood to other factors that affect flood map accuracy, assesses disaster relief costs by offering federal flood insurance the benefits and costs of more accurate flood maps, and to owners of property in floodplains, provided their suggests ways to improve.

For the river reaches studied in flood map production, even though the elevation in North Carolina, a 1-foot change in flood elevation uncertainties of the NED are about 10 times greater corresponds to a horizontal uncertainty in the flood- than those defined by FEMA as acceptable for flood- plain boundary of 8 feet in the mountains, 10 feet in.

This digital elevation model was created using structure from motion software mounted to an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) to analyze bridge scour.

Studies using UAS have included stream temperature analyses, bird and mammal surveys, coastal change mapping, sandbar habitat surveys, fluvial erosion rates, microclimate mapping, air quality analysis.

Any of the digital mapping data created and maintained by the Geographic Information System (GIS) Division of the Administration Department is available online from the Data Download site for free. Any request will be treated as a custom request and will be charged a fee, see custom requests for more information.

An additional file conversion fee is charged for data requests in file formats. Terrain or relief (also topographical relief) involves the vertical and horizontal dimensions of land surface. The term bathymetry is used to describe underwater relief, while hypsometry studies terrain relative to sea Latin word terra (the root of terrain) means "earth.".

In physical geography, terrain is the lay of the is usually expressed in terms of the elevation, slope. Once the terrain model is complete, it is fairly simple to add the flood water to the terrain surface to enable floodplain visualization.

At present, my research stands at step 6: smoothing the interface between the raster and vector data sources. A digital terrain model (DTM) can be constructed in AutoCAD and sections can be cut from the DTM and imported into HEC- RAS.

(needed: impartial review of this commercial product) studied [10–12,18]. Additionally, the impact of vertical errors of DTMs on terrain derivatives has been examined [10,17] as well as the impact of DTMs on hydrologic modelling [15,16,19] and flood simulation [3,14,18].

The suitability of a DTM for terrain analysis has also been examined. For example. CONVERTING DIGITAL ELEVATION MODELS INTO GRIDS AND TINS FOR USE IN ARCVIEW AND ARCGIS The following documentation outlines conversion steps for the following DEM and DTM formats for use in ArcView and ArcGIS: 1.

The course covers modelling used for planning and design as well as for forecasting floods so that mitigating measures can be taken in time. Selection Criteria causing floods may also be referred to the procedure for the determination of the flood area or process to build catchments using ArcGIS The criteria used in this study were referred from previous studies.

Factors to consider are digital terrain, rainfall, flow direction, flow accumulation and catchment by: 1. imprecise, but nowadays satellite data and digital terrain models provide the tool for a more successful application of distributed hydrological models.

In this paper a model is presented which makes use of such data for parameter derivation and as model input. It will further be described how a data. transects of the river or creek and its floodplains.

For 2D models, cross-sections are not used (a DTM, Digital Terrain Model, is used), and the identification of Floodways, Flood Storage and Flood Fringe areas is not so easily carried out using the above criteria.

The data used to produce the river flood map is listed in table 1(Appendix A), alongside a description of the data, how it was used and the quality review process. Methodology The development of the river flood map is based on a two-dimensional (2D) flood modelling method applied across Scotland to all catchments greater than 3km2.

Unfortunately, for many countries these data do not comprehensively exist. the digital terrain model is constructed, can be recombined to provide continuous coverage across maps that are larger than the digitizer tablet.
