Integrated Hydrology + Data Science


The Challenge

The Interagency Flood Risk Management (InFRM) team brings together Federal Partners to determine the needs of communities and define solutions and implement measures to reduce long term flood risk throughout Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. InFRM needed technical expertise to build key parts of the InFRM solution: Estimating Base Flood Elevation, Flood Decision Support Toolbox, and Watershed Hydrology Assessments. Additionally, InFRM needed a website that could provide a single place to find information about the InFRM team and InFRM products.

Our Solution

IHDS scientists and developers have worked cooperatively to build a suite of web applications and reports including

  • Transforming thousands of models and data results into datasets accessible through the interactive web portal
  • Designing and developing an interactive, map-driven interface for users to explore flood extents
  • Visualizing potential flood inundation areas using a map interface
  • Using existing or newly developed hydraulic models to generate map libraries
  • Performing Watershed Hydrology Assessments to update flood risk estimates in large, complex river basins using suites of models developed by USACE
