The WMS software development team is excited about the release of WMS 10.1! This page lists the exciting new features that have been added to WMS 11.0.

What's new in WMS 11.0

Map Flood Tool

A new Map Flood tool was added to automatically offset 100-year floodplain maps to analyze extreme flood scenarios. This option can be used to define a vertical offset from a baseline 100-year FEMA floodplain map. This vertical offset is used with readily available web service data to automatically delineate a new floodplain and determine a new, wider floodplain boundary that accounts for this offset. These modified floodplain maps can be used to determine the impacts of extreme weather and flood scenarios on existing and proposed roadways and other structures.

Floodplain Delineation Improvements

The floodplain delineation capabilities in WMS 11.0 have been streamlined and improved. In many cases, the floodplain delineation has been sped up by a factor of 10.

Worldwide Elevation Data

Support for Amazon Terrain Tiles has been added to the various Import from Web and Get Data tools in WMS. This service provides high resolution elevation data for the entire world with resolutions as high as 3 meters per pixel.

HEC-RAS Cross Section Database Improvements

Better support for managing and editing cross section databases for HEC-RAS modeling has been added. A new dialog that allows WMS users to select, manage, and edit cross sections and cross section databases has been implemented.

Cross Section Database

Support for Reading, Viewing, and Converting LIDAR Data

Improved support for reading, viewing, and converting LIDAR data to other formats to use with your model has been added.

HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS Updates

Support has been added for the most recent version of HEC-RAS (5.0.3) and the most recent version of HEC-HMS (4.2.1).

The option to import HEC-RAS GIS (*.sdf) files has been sped up and improved.

GSSHA Updates

LandXML Import/Export

Support for reading and writing LandXML files from the hydraulic modeling module for the SWMM, HY12, and EPANET models has been added.

Higher Resolution Icons

Higher resolution icons allow the icon size to be changed. This is done in the Preferences dialog under the General tab.
