As a non-specialist, enviro-enthusiast, I am curious about visualizing post-precipitation run-off in my local area. I have been able to access and download appropriate elevatio rasters for my local topography, but have not been able to find a tool or pipeline to visualize where water goes after it rains. That is, essentially, my goal.

I have looked at several packages in this list (https://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Hydrology.html), but no vignettes or examples take me through the process using raster/elevation files.

Are there any straightforward walk-throughs that would let me use my existing data to generate visualizations of drainage/flow from preciptation, using previously obtained raster elevation files?
