“Why can’t I overlay my time-varying model results on my GIS datasets?”

Time-varying analysis

The unique ability to integrate time varying model results with GIS datasets allows rapid time varying analysis.

Sophisticated tools

Easily create thematic maps, rapidly create and extract a range of plots and calibration data at any location in your model.

Batch queries

Batch process the extraction of time series, profile, and flow plots at any location in your model.

Common interface

Regardless of the model you use, interrogate any of your model results with the same tools and from the convenience of a single interface.

waterRIDE provides hydraulic modelers with powerful, purpose built tools for integrating 1D and 2D time-varying modeling results with GIS datasets, within a live GIS environment.

The waterRIDE environment was developed by hydraulic modelers at Advisian to overcome the limitations of conventional GIS platforms in their distinct lack of support for integrated time-varying datasets.

Sophisticated tools allow modelers to rapidly prepare deliverables such as smoothed GIS flood extents, results mapped to fine scale DTMs, thematic model surfaces, peak water levels from many model results, peak hydraulic hazards, seamless surfaces covering multiple catchments and models, floodplain classification (floodway, flood storage, flood fringe hydraulic categories), and mapping to GIS.

Models currently supported include (both 1D and 2D): TUFLOW, TUFLOW FV, MIKE11/21/FLOOD/SHE/URBAN, RMA2, RMA10, RMA11, InfoWorks, ISIS, SOBEK, DELFT 3D, FLS, SELFE, RiverFlow 2D, time-varying ASCII grid output, HEC-RAS, XP-STORM, EXTRAN (XP-SWMM), DRAINS overland flow, ESTRY, ANUGA, ICPR, and even hard copy results.
