SMS is organized into modules. Each module is associated with a particular object type. Only one module is active at any given time. When switching modules, the menus and the tools unique to the active module are displayed.

2D Mesh Icon.svg Mesh. Contains tools for editing unstructured networks. Includes tools for working with nodes, elements, nodestrings and model parameters.

UGrid Icon Unlocked.svg UGrid. Contains tools for editing unstructured grids.

Curvilnear Grid Model Icon.svg Curvilinear Grid. Contains tools for editing boundary fitted structured grids. Includes tools for working with cells and cell vertices, cellstrings and model parameters.

2D Grid Icon.svg Cartesian Grid. Contains tools for creating/editing Cartesian structured grids. Includes tools for working with cells and cell strings for cell centered grids, and nodes and nodestrings for mesh centered grids. Also includes tools for editing model parameters for Cartesian Finite Difference models.

2D Scatter Icon.svg Scatter. Used for surface modeling with Triangulated Irregular Networks (TINs) or Digital Elevation Maps (DEMSs) used for background data.

Map Module Icon.svg Map. Used to build conceptual models using feature objects and conceptual models.

GIS Module Icon.svg GIS. Used to read in GIS objects directly using ARC objects. Includes tools to select groups of objects and convert those objects into feature objects in the Map module.

1D-River-Module-Icon.svg 1D River. Used to edit and manage river cross sections along river reaches for 1D hydraulic models.

1D Grid Icon.svg 1D Grid. Used to edit 1D grids used in beach morphology modeling.

Particle Set Icon.svg Particle. Used to manage and create Lagrangian particle trace simulations and display their results.
