The USGS FloodPath forecast-flood mapping system can draw a map of a flood several days before it hits. FloodPath takes the National Weather Service flood forecast for a point on a river, then extends it across the entire basin, showing where floodwaters will go, when they will arrive and crest, and how deep they will be. FloodPath creates the map and automatically serves it on the Web.
