It is difficult to account for urban drainage networks when modelling overland water flow in an urban setting using conventional GIS software. This paper presents a GIS -based method for incorporating subsurface drainage flow through conventional drainage networks into overland flow paths. Planners and engineers in local government can use our flow path method to improve calculation of flooding risk in low-lying and newly developing areas.
