With respect to increasing number of advanced technology applications for urban drainage projects in the Czech republic the requirements for relevant rain data become more important. Two research projects related to measurement, evaluation and application of rainfall data for urban hydrology purposes were launched. Suitable measuring equipment and their reliability have been studied and evaluated. The needs of high density of rain gauges for single event investigation of sewer system have been verified. The spatial distribution of rainfall doesnt influence statistical evaluation of the effects obtained by long term simulation significantly. The needs for rainfall data will be proposed for the master plan of urban drainage in Prague.
