Here we present the outline of an information mapping framework that allows coupling of existing surface and subsurface hydraulic modelling domains and can provide an alternate to specialized fully integrated coupled modelling codes. The flexibility of the framework intends to allow selecting solvers with assumptions and representations in-line with the requirements of the area being modelled as well as reusing the expertise that has gone into building the decoupled models as part of the respective surface flow or groundwater study. We focus on 2d representation of surface hydraulics and 3d representation of subsurface flow to form the basis of the generic information mapping framework and demonstrate its applicability.
