Abstract: A flash flood forecasting system is being developed which has three main elements: 1) high resolution estimation of rainfall in time and space using radar and ground-based gages; 2) computer models of hydrologic response; and 3) interactive computer graphic (ICG) system for data management, analysis and display. Linkage of radar-rainfall digital imagery with an ICG watershed data management package has been accomplished on a desktop workstation. This paper presents an overview of the flash flood forecasting system and results of efforts for linkage of spatial data sets defining rainfall distribution and watershed area.
