description: The Kansas Biological Survey (KBS) FLDPLN (“Floodplain”) model was used to create a Segmented Library of Inundation Extents (SLIE) spanning 40 counties in eastern Kansas. The SLIE, which includes more than 330 stream segments, was developed during 2007-2009 using 10-m USGS NED elevation data. Using real-time and forecast river stage information from more than 130 USGS and NWS stream gages located in eastern Kansas, the SLIE allows for seamless, stage-varying estimation of floodwater extent during major riverine flood events. The FLDPLN model was originally developed at KBS for river valley identification and “depth to flood” mapping. In addition to its emergency response and training exercise applications, the FLDPLN model is currently used by KBS scientists for wetland stratification, river valley morphology assessment, and lake extent mapping. Use Constraints: This database is not suited for flood insurance studies or other regulatory purposes. Interpretations derived from this use are intended for planning purposes only.
