GIS Application in Analysis of Flood Inundation
Flood disaster affects the development of our national economy seriously and made people’s life and property in danger. It also destroyed our ecological environment. In this paper, a model which is based on the geographic information system (GIS) has been introduced with the flood submerging range and submerging algorithm. Experimental results with Xi-tiao-xi area flood region using of digital elevation model (DEM), provides that it is possible to make a rapid flood damage assessment and scientific flood control decision service. The simulation performance is accurate and rapid.
