Aqua Duck is developed using 900 uniformly distributed nodes in Singapore to provide the flood risk areas in precipitation scenarios. The model uses elevation data from 900 nodes, with the assumption that water will flow to the adjacent node with the lowest elevation. The model also accounts for water flow rate and water absorption affects to to flooding.
