2021 App WinnerFloodline and LiDAR Mapping
Author: Graham Good - District of Muskoka
Software Used: Esri ArcMap, ArcGIS for Hub
Abstract: The new Muskoka GeoHub site has a new Floodline and LiDAR map that the public can see live water level station data with a legend showing changes in water level in real time. This app consumes the GoeServices from the source. The water station conversion factor has been added to the custom popup showing the elevation in masl so the property owner can compare the rising water level to their property elevation using accurate LiDAR based DTM. Note the links to other data in the popup and the swipe widget with historical air photos.
2021 Map Winner
Debris Flows in the Bow River Valley, between the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, using DEMs
Author: Nebyu Woldeyohanes - Nipissing University
Software Used: ArcMap 10.7
Abstract: Morphometric factors including slope gradient and slope aspect, with the help of water cause debris flow in Bow River Valley. Morphometric variables calculated from the DEM shows that environmental change with the help of road developments and natural factors like precipitation cause debris flow in Bow Valley. Based on this project, Bow Valley Parkway and Trans-Canada Highway are highly susceptible to debris flows due to their close proximity to the sub-drainage basins. The sub-basins provide materials including water, sediment, rocks mix with trees and debris for the movement of debris flows. A better understanding of the human-environment relation can prevent environmental hazards like debris flow thorough examination of the slopes of the sub drainage basins.
