Session Type: 
Tech Session
Ms Yang Cao, Idaho State University
Mr Daniel Ames

This paper presents the applications of the integration of Geographic Information System (GIS) and Data Mining knowledge to hydrological information studies. GIS is utilized for location visualization and spatial analysis operations, while Data Mining technique is employed to figure out the relationships between different types of hydrologic related data. HydroAnalyzer is developed as a plug-in of HydroDesktop, which is a free desktop GIS software for accessing data from CUAHSI-HIS, time series analysis, and hydrologic modeling.
