Abstract: In developing countries, rapid urbanization reduces the natural land area and increases the impervious surface. At the same time, urban rainstorm waterlogging is also becoming more frequent and serious. Therefore, one of the important works to be done is to elucidate the relationship between impervious surface expansion and waterlogging frequency (WF) causes of urban waterlogging. To move forward, we used ENVI to classify land cover types and applied the spatial analysis methods integrated in ArcGIS with internet open data to explore these relationships in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2018. The results show that waterlogging frequency was positively related to impervious surface percentage (ISP), indicating that if the median values of ISP increased then the waterlogging frequency would increase as well with a confidence level of 63.2%. This study demonstrates the importance for controlling the impervious surface expansion in urban waterlogging risk management and urban planning.
