dc.description.abstract The work presented here describes the design and implementation of a hydrological model based on high resolution 3D LIDAR data sets. The model incorporates existing hydrological concepts combined with novel computational methods to determine where water will flow and accumulate during a rainstorm event by combining soil composition information with the topographical content provided by the LIDAR data. The model was designed and tested using publically available data sets and real world storm parameters to demonstrate its functionality. The end result is a flexible model that fuses multiple data sources and concepts that is capable of producing a high level of information for further analyses.
