Project Ideas

Flow Map, Flow Simulation

Build a map of San Diego county with flow vectors, per USNG 100m square, that indicate which direction water would flow off the square. Then, link the squares into a network to trace the flow of every square to a flow line. Link all of the flow lines together to trace where water ends up, most specifically, which collection point that it will flow through.

The map should incorporate:

  • Flow lines
  • Stormdrains
  • Terrain
  • Land use

It should be possible to combine these sets into a network that allows propagating runoff from square to square.

Land use: Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Database

This Report has a wet-wether hydrology model.
