The University of Texas have been working with Esri to support the connection of GIS and water resources. This is specifically in the areas of hydrology and flood mapping. With integrating data such as where people live and work and merging with other modelling domains, like transportation, there is a possibility to connect flood forecasting models with the transportation models. This might improve evacuation planning and first responder deployment. Also, prioritize cleanup and recovery. Thus, it will be a beneficial development in the area of GIS Mapping Services.
