A White Paper presented to Oglala Lakota College for use in pre-engineering class exercises. This paper is meant to be used as a supplemental aid to the tutorials and user’s manuals stated in the references. It is assumed that the user has basic knowledge of ArcGIS 10.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a real world example of how to develop and analyze a watershed. The watershed examined was the Upper White River Sub-basin Watershed which was recreated digitally with the aid of computer software and spatial data. Data links for needed files are provided throughout the paper. Computer software utilized was ArcGIS 10 (C ESRI, 2014), and HEC-HMS 4.0 (U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, 2013a) (Hydrologic Engineering Center – Hydrologic Modelling System). Screen shots of the Upper White River Sub-basin Watershed results are provide along with deviation of steps from referenced tutorials and user manuals.
