    Flood hazard assessment involves two key components: figuring out how much water is likely to flow down a river and second figuring out where that water is going to go. Assuming that data is available to help define water volumes and flow characteristics, calculating flood extents and flood depths is the easy part. Making useful, intuitive maps and other tools is the tricky part.
