 Abstract—The Central Business District (CBD) of a city is the activity center of the city, typically locating the main commercial and cultural establishments, as well as acting as the center point of the city's transportation network. Flood risk assessment for a CBD is crucial for proper city planning and maintenance. In this study, we model the flood risk for the CBD of Tuguegarao City, which is located in northern Philippines. To accomplish this, we identified important flood-related… Expand
