7. GIS in Water Resources: Lecture 1 • In-class and distance learning • Geospatial database of hydrologic features • Arc Hydro data model • Curved earth and a flat map

8. Geospatial Database

9. Levels of Analysis:Relational Database Relational Linkages Spatial Attributes Water Right Locations Descriptive Attributes

10. Spatial Data: Vector format Vector data are defined spatially: (x1,y1) Point - a pair of x and y coordinates vertex Line - a sequence of points Node Polygon - a closed set of lines

11. Raster and Vector Data Raster data are described by a cell grid, one value per cell Vector Raster Point Line Zone of cells Polygon

12. How do we combine these data? Digital Elevation Models Streams Watersheds Waterbodies

13. An integrated raster-vector database

14. GIS in Water Resources: Lecture 1 • In-class and distance learning • Geospatial database of hydrologic features • Arc Hydro data model • Curved earth and a flat map

15. What is Arc Hydro? • An data infrastructure for storing and integrating hydro data within ArcGIS • A set of hydro objects built on top of ArcObjects • A set of standardized attributes • A vocabulary for describing data (glossary) • A toolset for implementing the data model

16. Drainage System Hydro Network Flow Time Time Series Hydrography Channel System Arc Hydro Components

17. Arc Hydro Data Model Hydrology Hydrography

18. Data Model Based on Inventory Streams Drainage Areas Hydrography Channels Terrain Surfaces Rainfall Response Digital Orthophotos

19. Data Model Based on Behavior Follow a drop of water from where it falls on the land, to the stream, and all the way to the ocean.

20. Integrating Data Inventory using a Behavioral Model Relationships between objects linked by tracing path of water movement

21. Arc Hydro Framework dataset for USA at 1:500,000 scale Built from USGS and National Weather Service data MonitoringPoints are USGS stream gaging stations Arc Hydro USA

22. Building lot Arc Hydro Applied to an Urban Subdivision Storm sewer Grassy swale

23. Arc Hydro Framework Input Data Watersheds Waterbody Streams Monitoring Points

24. Arc Hydro Framework

25. Hydrologic Cataloging Units (HUCS) Hydrologic Unit Code = 12100203 Guadalupe Basin (4 HUC’s) • 2015 HUC’s cover continental US • average area ~ 1 county

26. Arc Hydro Framework Dataset for the Guadalupe Basin

27. HydroNetwork through Canyon Lake Flowlines through water body Generic Junction (for topological connection of edges)

28. HydroJunction has Waterbody Relationship

29. GIS in Water Resources: Lecture 1 • In-class and distance learning • Geospatial database of hydrologic features • Arc Hydro data model • Curved earth and a flat map

30. Origin of Geographic Coordinates Equator (0,0) Prime Meridian

31. Latitude and Longitude Longitude line (Meridian) N W E S Range: 180ºW - 0º - 180ºE Latitude line (Parallel) N W E S (0ºN, 0ºE) Equator, Prime Meridian Range: 90ºS - 0º - 90ºN

32. Latitude and Longitude in North America Austin: (30°N, 98°W) Logan: (42°N, 112°W) 60 N 30 N 60 W 120 W 90 W 0 N

33. Map Projection Flat Map Cartesian coordinates: x,y (Easting & Northing) Curved Earth Geographic coordinates: f, l (Latitude & Longitude)

34. Representative Fraction Globe distanceEarth distance = Earth to Globe to Map Map Projection: Map Scale: Scale Factor Map distanceGlobe distance = (e.g. 0.9996) (e.g. 1:24,000)

35. Coordinate Systems A planar coordinate system is defined by a pair of orthogonal (x,y) axes drawn through an origin Y X Origin (xo,yo) (fo,lo)
