Abstract:

The Flood Event Assessment Tool FEAT is a prototype geospatial modeling tool that uses river and stream gage data, landscape digital elevation models DEMs, main and secondary channel centerlines or cross sections to generate a geospatial-based flood surface. The primary objective in developing FEAT was to improve the accuracy and decrease the time and effort required to determine dynamic flood surfaces and provide information for decision-making. This guide provides an overview of FEAT, information about the algorithms, software and hardware requirements, installation procedures and operation, user input requirements, and examples of model output products.
