Watershed Analysis of the University of Dayton Campus
The project seeks to create a watershed map of the University of Dayton campus through ArcGIS data and techniques. The campus has a network of stormwater drains that output directly to the river, with every area of campus having runoff that goes to specific drains. Using digital elevation model (DEM) data and GPS locations of stormwater drains, the campus will be divided into small parcels or mini watersheds displaying all of the area that flows to each drain. Any rain that falls in these regions will runoff to the drain associated with it. This knowledge could be used in future projects and research to evaluate the water management of the campus.
