Description :
The effects of the topographic data source and resolution on the hydraulic modelling of floods were analysed. Seven digital terrain models (DTMs) were generated from three different altimetric sources : a global positioning system (GPS) survey and bathymetry; high-resolution laser altimetry data LiDAR (light detection and ranging); and vectorial cartography (1:5000). Selection criteria were established for the different topographic models in order to assess their generation and treatment in relation to the time-cost ratio for each methodology. the hydraulic modelling was carried out on a 2 km reach of the Ted River near Sant Juliá de Ramis near Girona in NE Spain.
