InfoSewer and H2OMap Theory
In the past few years, advances in infrastructure management technology have been occurring at an accelerated pace. This technology is now being realized within the context of sanitary and storm sewer modeling. It has allowed sewer collection system modeling applications to seamlessly integrate with GIS productivity software for comprehensive spatial data management and analysis in a shared management and decision making environment. You can now realize synergistic relationships between maps and the assets you manage to effectively sustain the flow of information to help you support many organizational programs and policies.
InfoSewer is developed to run entirely within ArcGIS. It offers all the capabilities your organization demands from a state-of-the-art sewer hydraulic network solver. Build sewer collection system models, run network hydraulic simulations, analyze model results, and integrate information with other applications with astounding speed and accuracy.
· Building Sewer Collection System Models - InfoSewer was designed to greatly facilitate and automate many of the data compilation and management duties in collection modeling. Through its powerful and intuitive menu-driven interface, the user can construct an accurate representation of the distribution system, including a map of the system, attributes required for analysis, and other user-defined attributes.
· Creating Collection System Hydraulic Simulations - Upon building an appropriate representation of the distribution system, the user may perform several different types of hydraulic and water quality network simulations.
· Analyzing Model Results - Upon completion of each simulation, the user can view, query, and display analysis results using sophisticated graphical presentation tools including dynamic map annotation/labeling, color-coding, graphing, contouring, profiling, customizable tabular reporting, and vivid VCR-style animation to produce truly compelling results.
· Integrating Information with Other Applications - InfoSewer is compatible with other Windows, GIS and CAD-based applications. Data is easily exchanged with other applications including presentation applications, spreadsheets, relational databases, mapping, and geographic information systems.
