An area property coverage is used to map properties such as Manning's roughness values to the mesh, grid, or cross-sections.
Materials are used to define different values for the property the material represents. For example, if the material represents the Manning's roughness value, materials are defined to represent the different Manning's roughness values to be included in the model (stream, floodplain, field, roadway, etc.). Polygons can then be created to define the stream, floodplain, field, and roadway with the corresponding material assigned.
Materials are assigned a name, color and pattern for display, and model specific attributes.
