Using ArcGIS to Prepare, Plan, and Respond to Flooding. | Corey Gens, ESRI

In this session we will demonstrate how ArcGIS can help you take your flood models and use them to prepare for, plan, and respond to flooding event. This session will focus on a high level overview of ArcGIS, and the creation of maps and apps that can help your organization discover who and what will be affected by flooding. It will also cover applications that can assist in collection of information from the field during and after flooding events.


ICPR Track  | Dade/Florida Keys Rooms

Using ICPR4 to Quantify Flood Risk for Land-Locked Systems | Pete Singhofen, P.E., Streamline Technologies, Inc.

This workshop delves into the challenging problems of quantifying flood risks of land-locked stormwater management systems, where percolation, leakage and evapotranspiration are the only outfalls. Topics such as groundwater – surface water interaction, confining layers, leakage through confining layers, saturated horizontal groundwater flow, unsaturated vertical groundwater flow, physically-based infiltration methods, vertically stratified soil columns, importance of directly connected impervious areas, and drain wells are discussed. Numerous real world examples are presented with detailed descriptions of model setup and interpretation of results.
