This Wednesday we are going to talk about Geographic Information System (GIS) and its application in Engineering Hydrology. Geo-spatial data and mapping applications are being made by GIS tools are very important in water resources subjects since it provides more precise location information. The latest version of ARCMAP is installed on all systems at B205. You just need to login using your user id and password, and follow the exercise and weblog tutorial step by step. I have ARCGIS 9.3 at my office (C111) and you are very welcome to install it on your own personal laptop.
In this lecture, we are going to focus on some basic tools which enable you to extract some hydro parameters for your project.
