Data requirements for integrating urban development and urban water infrastructure models
Christian Mikovits, Wolfgang Rauch, Manfred Kleidorfer
This work presents an introduction to urban development models with a focus on their usage in urban water sciences. Two models are compared and described: one developed within the DynAlp project at the University of Innsbruck, the other well established and developed at the University of California, Berkeley. Data need within both models differs significantly and therefor a comparison of the outputs of both models after a coupling with a drainage model and a water distribution model will give insight on which temporal and spatial resolution is needed for planers and engineering offices.
