The drainage module has a number of tools to edit feature objects. The dialogs can be reached by double-clicking on feature object or by selecting the feature object then selecting Attributes from the Feature Objects Menu.

Feature Arc Type

Drainage Feature Arc Type dialog

This dialog is accessed by selecting a feature arc. The type of arc can be selected from this dialog. Available types are:

  • Generic – Have no attributes and are used when developing drainage boundaries or when establishing the boundary polygon for creating a TIN from feature objects.
  • Stream – Used to define stream reaches hydrologic models.
  • Pipe
  • Lake – Used to trace around the boundary of a lake.
  • Ridge – Used when creating a TIN from feature objects and are used to designate any other (besides boundary, stream, and lake) linear segment to be enforced as a breakline in the resulting TIN.

Selecting the Stream option makes the Edit Attributes button active. Clicking on this button will bring up the Edit Stream Arc Attributes dialog.

Drainage Feature Point Type dialog

This dialog allows selecting the point type. It is accessed by selecting a feature node point. Available types in the drainage module are:

  • Generic – Have no attributes and can be used for drawing purposes.
  • Drainage outlet – Directly linked to the hydrologic modeling tree.
  • Route point

When the Route point type is selected the Edit Attributes button becomes available. Clicking on this button will open the Edit Drainage Point Attributes dialog.

Selecting a feature polygon can bring up the Drainage Feature Polygon Type dialog. The dialog allows designating the polygon type. Available types in the drainage module are:

  • Generic – Used as an intermediate polygon type when importing data from another source.
  • Drainage boundary – Default setting for polygons in the drainage model.
  • Lake / reservoir

Selecting the Drainage boundary option will make the Edit Attributes button active. This button will bring up the Edit Basin Polygon Attributes dialog.
