How to Import Link Shapefiles into InfoSWMM

This blog describes how to use the GIS Gateway tool in InfoSWMM to import shapefiles and make InfoSWMM DB Tables and Arc Map Layers from the Shapefiles.   The import of shapefiles into either InfoSWMM or H2oMap SWMM is very flexible and uses the Command Exchange/GIS Gateway.  If you are starting from a new Arc Map then it is best to first add the shapefiles to Arc Map, initialize the Map to the Coordinate System of the Shapefiles and then import the Shapefiles using GIS Gateway to make an InfoSWMM Junction Layer.  The Steps to use the GIS Gateway for Nodes
Step 1.   Add the Pipe or Link Shapefiles and Initialize the Arc Map to the Coordinate System of the Shapfile using either the Personal or File GeoDatabase Options.
Step 2.   Use the GIS Gateway command and set up the Shapefile to load into the Conduit Tables of InfoSWMM with the proper GIS Mapping Field.
Step 3.   You need to Map the Shapefile Data Fields to the InfoSWMM Conduit Data Fields.
Step 4.   Load the Shapefile using the Load Command.  The InfoSWMM DB Tables will be updated.
Step 5.   The Conduit Layer of InfoSWMM has the loaded tables, you can see the data by using the Open Attribute Table Command.
Step 6.   The InfoSWMM DB Table for Conduits has the imported Link data.
