Please give us a little more context... What programming languages do you plan to use (ie, What languages do you already have expertise using)?  Are you familiar with API programming?  What kind of output do you want to get? What mapping tools will you use, etc?  Thanks, ~Ray

Hello mnaeem_1...if you are planning on creating a web application you should consider the cost and effort associated with establishing a mapping server let alone a 3d flood modelling system.. This sort of application is generally reserved for offline processing,,,and subsequent uploading the outputs to the map server.    If you are not professionals in the field of flood modelling you need to consider the exposure of such resources that may be used by individuals that may make decisions on your outputs for their personal safety.  FEMA categorises input data on its level of usability for accurate modelling, particularly where human safety is involved.

Alternatively instead of building an application it may be a wiser investment to get a pro to produce the outputs and then overlay them on a 3d map server etc.  This may save time and $.

Many good applications exist but they may require training, eg WMS, ArcGIS, Aquaveo products, Hydrocad etc
