Catchment Area

One of the nifty tools in 2009 is the catchment area. It is the opposite of the rain drop feature. It saves time especially when trying to figure drainage areas. I use the 2D option, so I can get an area. I haven’t played with the 3D option, as I think it would give erroneous areas since it basically drapes itself over the surface and follows every hill and valley.

THEN – I can convert this into a parcel and get a nice area label for my Drainage Area mapping.

Nifty, eh?
