Flood Risk Estimator

Floo
d Risk Estimator (FRE) is a front end GIS application developed to give friendly face to all
complicated floodplain mapping and risk estimation process. The idea is to develop an easy to
use graphical user interface for users with less/no command on GIS mo
deling. It is anticipated
that

application will have the following characteristics:

a)

All required data layers (flooded area and elements of risk) generated from
HECRAS will be available by default for the project area

b)

Functionality to have Add data layers
(point, line and polygons) option

c)

Drop down option to select pre
-
defined water discharge levels (5 years, 10 years,
25 years, 50 years and 100 years)

d)

Buttons to perform queries for selecting inundated villages, schools, hospitals etc
at a particular discha
rge

e)

Option to Watch Video of flood water flow in study area at particular discharge

f)

Main window of application will include spaces for Table of Contents, Map
window, Attributes table and toolbars

g)

Export option to export data of affected elements to a pre
-
d
efined excel
workbook for further analysis

A concept sketch of the application is given in the figure below:

6.1

Standard Toolbox

Standard Toolbox consist of the c
ontrol where user can perform the following actions on the
layers that are added in the table of content window



Add Data

Click on the
Add Data
button on the standard toolbar.

Navigateto the data layer of interest. Select it, and click the Add button.

T
he user can add multiple data layers to the Application
Display;

regardless of whether or not
all data layers are spatially alike (have the same projection and datum). Application transforms
layers of different projection and datum "on the fly" to the Appl
ication Display.

These layers can be temporarily made visible or invisible by clicking on the check box located
next to each layer name in the Application table of contents.

When multiple data layers are visible, the user can drag a layer to the top of the

table of
contents in order to place that data layer on top of all of the other layers. In the following
example the Interstate Highway layer was moved to the top of the table of contents in order to
make data visible within the map display window.

In the
table of contents, the user can right click on the name of a data layer. A context menu
opens, which allows the user to begin a variety of operations.

Step 2:

Click on the Water Discharge drop down combo box, it will show the different levels of flood.
For example we want to view 4 lack cusec discharge affect, then from combo box select
Flood_4
00000
,


After selecting water dischar
ge, select the element at risk from the
Select Layer

drop down
combo box. Click on the combo box and you will find out all the available elements. For
example we want to view affected village
on 4 lack cusec discharge, then select Villages Layer
from the d

The detail information of these 1
8

affected villages like villages name, number of household,
population, number of boys, girls, male, female, animals etc. can be
viewed.

Step: 3

When flood affected villages appear in the Result window,
and then

we can generate these
affected villages list for early preparedness strategy and to take action to cope with the flood
affect.

Click on the Report button to generate 4 lack
cusec discharge affected village detail.


We can print this report, saved and perform action according to requirement.

Similarly, you can select any water discharge
for

any layer to see, what will be the reaction of
water discharge

at
any

particular elem
ent
