GIS Hydrologic Modeling with HEC HMS in Austin, Texas

by Dean Thomas

The objectives of this project are the following:

The traditional formulation of a hydrologic model for a watershed is a time consuming process, mainly devoted to the determination of parameter values to be used for estimating runoff. GIS data such as topography, land use, and soil type holds the promise of significantly reducing the task of constructing a hydrologic model. This project will be an attempt to integrate the following components: The results of the modeling will be compared with existing hydrologic studies for the Austin area. This data is on file with the City's Stormwater Management Division. The project is being undertaken to help determine the following: If you'd like to know more, or want me to know more, e-mail me at:
