Abstract: The Purdue University Web-Based Hydrography Analysis Tool (WHAT) allows users
to view USGS stream flow data in a GIS setting. Users can also upload their own
stream flow data to be visualized in this map service which is created using
the open source mapserver technology. A flow statistics model was added to the
system to generate models for flood scenarios.
