In this course, participants will get the basic introduction to GIS and its application in pre-processing and post-processing of data required for numerical model studies. Information on various GIS applications specific to flood risk assessment, flood plain mapping, and emergency response planning will be provided in the course.


The training program is designed to equip the participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and numerical modeling techniques in the field of flood management. In addition, participants will be introduced to the basics of numerical modelling, estimation of design flood and application of 1D / 2D numerical model in flood management. On the completion of course participants will become familiar with different types of numerical models used in flood management, understand their underlying principles, and gain knowledge in utilizing these models to simulate floods, assess flood risks, and evaluate flood mitigation measures.
