WMS:Mapping the Conceptual Model to a River Schematic

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

WMS uses a conceptual model (coverages of centerlines, and cross sections) to define the hydraulic model, but at some point this conceptual model must be mapped to an equivalent topologic model representation for a Hydraulic model. HEC-RAS for example is defined as reaches and cross sections. Each reach and section has appropriate stationing defined from the spatial nature of the conceptual model. When choosing this command (Map → 1D Schematic command in the River Tools menu), a schematic of the river is made for the appropriate model. The example below shows the reach (small boxes at the beginning of each reach) and section icons of the schematic for an HEC-RAS model. In the Hydraulic Modeling module the schematic is generally used as the view of the model.
