The Ontario Floodplain Mapping Technical Working Group hosted the first annual Tech-Transfer Workshop on March 2-3, 2016 in Peterborough, Ontario.

This workshop examined the status of flooodplain mapping on Ontario and presented the results from the first set of a series of projects that explore processes for three technical components of floodplain mapping:

  • Base Mapping
  • Hydrology
  • Hydraulics

Presentations from this workshop are available here:
