Webinar Overview:  The availability of high resolution and highly accurate public geospatial data has enabled the creation of detailed information about terrain and land cover that can inform new hydrologic models for use in urban stormwater management. We have used these public data to generate derivative geospatial information products that served as the basis for hydrologic characterization and modeling of an urban watershed. Using an open source peak flow calculator toolset, geospatial data play an essential role in the estimation of flow at any given point within a watershed or sub-basin. These calculations and GIS-based analyses provide essential information that help stakeholders understand the impact of increasingly frequent and severe stormwater events as they relate to urban climate resilience.
