This paper reports is described the research of the numerical model the dam break on the example of the control structure near Nizhny Novgorod. For calculations was used the program MIKE 11, which is based on one-dimensional equations (Saint-Venant). The goal of the work is to develop the methods of using thegeographic information systems (ARCGIS10) for preparing the initial data and visualization of calculation results. In the process of the search of data about hydraulic structures, hydrological regime and other nature conditions was usedopen sources data. For topology of numerical model was used the digital elevation model (DEM) based on SRTM. The result of numerical modeling was used for the forecast of flooding.
