Integrating Geographical Information Systems (GIS) with Hydrological Modelling – Applicability and Limitations

  title={Integrating Geographical Information Systems (GIS) with Hydrological Modelling – Applicability and Limitations},
  author={Rajesh Vijaykumar Kherde and D. Priyadarshi and H. Sawant},
The evolution of Geographic information systems (GIS) facilitated the use digital terrain data for topography based hydrological modelling. The use of spatial data for hydrological modelling emerged from the great capability of GIS tools to store and handle the data associated hydro-morphology of the basin. These models utilize the spatially variable terrain data for converting rainfall into surface runoff. Manual map manipulation has always posed difficulty in analysing and designing large… Expand
