Project Overview | Hydrological Flow Model in Python


In this project I developed and implemented a hydrological flow model in python using DEM and rainfall data. Beside implementing the D8 flow algorithm I identify and fill pitflags / lakes and developed a drainage algorithm using a gravitation model towards the lake outflow.


For more information see the README in my github repository:


Developed Drainage Algorithm


For explanation and pseudo-code of the algorithm see my post:
