Abstract
Flooding is the most frequent, harmful, and deadly of all natural disasters that strike the world every year. It has severe effects on human society in the form life losses, damages to property, roads, and on natural setting. As flood is a natural hazard, so we can’t control it completely but the risk can be reduced by taking some measures. To carry out these tasks, an inventory of affected sites in Morocco, is important for better risk management. This article describes the detailed process for creating, modeling, and designing the flood database. This database is structured by Merise logic with a more or less simple schematization of the real world. It is structured in such a way as to evolve with the advancement of the work of capturing flood histories, hydrological and hydraulic calculations or when improvements are made by new models or techniques. The model is implemented in specially designed MS Access application for input and processing data database. This model will be compatible with both generic and specialised software for analysis, modelling, visualisation and transfer. This design allows homogenization of data exchanges between national stakeholders and follows international standards for flood risk management. It is standardized and could be interoperable.
