Hi,

I'm a student and was asked to use ArcGIS and SRTM Data to find a good place for a hydroelectricity power station and the associated reservoir. I know how to calculate the volume of an exisiting reservoir but I really have no clue how to find a perfect place for a new one. I think it should have a large watershed but how do I calculate that?

Thanks,

Simon
