Quick Start
This is a collection of flood datasets to support hydrologic research for Hurricane Harvey, August-September 2017. The best way to start exploring this collection is by opening the Hurricane Harvey 2017 Story Map [2]. It has separate sections for the different content categories, and links to the relevant HydroShare resources within this collection.

More Details
This is the root collection resource for management of hydrologic and related data collected during Hurricane Harvey on the Texas-Louisiana Gulf coast. This collection holds numerous composite resources comprising streamflow forecasts, inundation polygons and depth grids, flooding impacts, elevation grids, high water marks, and numerous other related information sources. Texas address points are included to support estimating storm and flood impacts in terms of structures within an affected area.

The data providers for this collection are the Texas Division of Emergency Management, NOAA National Weather Service, NOAA National Hurricane Center, NOAA National Water Center, FEMA, 9-1-1 emergency communications agencies, and many others. Esri and Kisters also provided invaluable tools, data and geoprocessing services to support the initial data production, and these are included or referenced.

User-contributed resources from 2017 US Hurricanes may also be shared with The CUAHSI 2017 Hurricane Data Community group [1] to make them accessible to interested researchers, Anyone may join this group.

An ArcGIS Story Map [2] has been created which provides example data views and interactive access to this collection.

This collection has been produced by work on a US National Science Foundation RAPID Award "Archiving and Enabling Community Access to Data from Recent US Hurricanes" [3].
