I think one way would be Using the LiDAR data and developing flood grids but I am not sure.

having this would help me to develop a preliminary analysis of potentially affected area. I think that way it will help to better understand the watershed dynamics as well as a preliminary business case for further analysis.

I am looking for help for this task and if anyone can help me with the steps and ways that can be done, would help me to accomplish this task .

 

In summary

  • Collecting the floodplain maps  and putting them into a GIS format
  • Using the LiDAR data (where possible) and developing flood grids
  • Using orthophotograpy and other data developing a preliminary analysis of assets potentially affected (this will help us better understand the watershed dynamics as well as a preliminary business case for further work or analysis)
  • Developing strategic planning tools where possible. (land use planning, building codes, climate sensitivity, outreach and public awareness, public safety and emergency response….)
  • Developing visual communication tools.
