Gewässerdirektion Südlicher Oberrhein/ Hochrhein (Baden- Württemberg State Administration of rivers and waterways for the southern part of the Upper Rhine) 

ArcView, floodFILL

In behalf of the Gewässerdirektion Südlicher Oberrhein/Hochrhein
floodFILL had been applied to model several scenarios of flood protection dam spilling for a area endangered of inundation. Thereby, the influence of different DEM resolutions on the calculation results had been investigated and endangered areas had been determined. Furthermore, the quality of the digital elevation model for the current problem had been evaluated.
