Abstract:

A flood plain management plan for White Rock Creek in the Cities of Dallas and Plano, Texas was developed. New technologies such as three-dimensional topography, CADD, and remote sensing were used in the analysis and report preparation. Data input from satellite imagery to hydrologic models was also tested with favorable results. These technologies show promise in reduction manpower requirements and improving accuracy for future flood plain management studies. The merging of processed images with vector CADD data has much potential in the analysis of future flood plain projects.
