Element Attribute Browser in InfoSewer and H2OMap Sewer

The Attribute Browser dialog box allows the user to view and edit the database information related to a selected link or node facility. Shown below, the dialog box contains all information related to links and nodes when selected by the user.

Unless “grayed” out, any of the records under the section headers (Geometry, Modeling, Information) are editable at any time. While using the Attribute Browser, click the red check box next to the title to expand and contract the section headers. The Output data section is available only after a successful model run. Additionally other features allow you to locate (search) elements, create default values and assign specific values through the Tools menu.
