The Arc Hydro MODFLOW Data Model
Arc Hydro data model, surface water, ground water, hydrostratigraphy
in 2002 the Arc Hydro data model was published (Maidment, 2002). The data model is a representation of surface water data in an ArcGIS spatial database (geo-database). Arc Hydro has been highly successful and has been widely adopted in industry. over the past three years, we have been working to develop a ground water data model that is a companion to the surface water data model. This data model will also be published in a book titled "Arc Hydro Groundwater" that will document the data model and provide a series of sample applications. The data model is designed to support various types of ground water data, including well/borehole data, 3D representations of hydrostratigraphy, and data from simulation models (Strassberg et al., 2007). It will be fully compatible with the surface water data model and the two data models will share some components.
