I have calculated my Flow Accumulation, Flow Direction, watersheds, etc and now want to take it to the next level. We are experiencing flooding at certain locations and want to be able to track the area from which the water is coming from for these locations on the fly. Is this possible with the out-of-the-box GIS tools. I looked through the Hydrology Toolset and couldn't find anything that would specifically perform this task?
