Remote Sensing and GIS Analysis of the Madison Area
MetadataShow full item record
This paper focuses on the remote sensing and GIS flood analysis of the Madison area. Our team was curious about how much damage occurred after the August 21st, 2018 flood in our study sites in Madison (Picnic Point, Brittingham Park, Lake Wingra, and Elver Park). In addition, we want to know why flooding occurred in those sites. Various remote sensing and GIS tools such as hydrology analysis, historical research, and the use of drones were utilized to answer our research questions. We discover that the increase of urbanization over time, low elevation, and a few numbers of watersheds are one of many factors that caused flooding in our study areas.
