Modelling of the temporal-spatial course of an inundation event on the Rhine based on digital elevation models and GIS.
For the Geography Department of the Freie Universität Berlin, written by Eva Bach
The floodFILL inundation model was used to model the temporal-spatial course of flooding in three different scenarios for the Cologne test area known as "Weisser Bogen" (White Bend). The input data necessary, a digital elevation model and the hydrological parameters derived from it, were put together in ArcView. The elevation model is based on height measurement points resulting from a flyover with a laser scanner.
The results graphics for one of the scenarios run can be downloaded here as an animated GIF ("floodcologne_s.gif", 1,3 MB).
