Hello.  I have a question that may seem easy to some of you, but I am stumped and need your help. 

I had a conversation with a co-worker this afternoon about a project we are working on where they need drainage areas.  I have
3 meter DEMs that cover the desired area and was wondering if there was a way to use these DEMs to develop a shapefile consisting of said drainage areas. 

I'm guessing I need to convert to flow direction rasters?  If so, what is the next step after that?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
