Key additional tools include a Transect Extractor that uses advanced GIS technology to automatically create channel cross-sections from a DEM or contour elevation data by simply drawing a line on the map. Stations and elevations can be extracted at equal distances or at each change in slope. Another new feature, a Dry Weather Flow (DWF) Allocator, automatically and reliably computes and assigns wastewater loads generated by various customer categories. Wastewater loads can be calculated based on land use, population, or meter data, then allocated by customer type or merged into a single base flow. In addition, InfoSWMM 4.0 now supports an unlimited number of dry weather base flows, which can be managed and tracked by customer type (industrial, residential, etc.) at each junction. Different hourly, daily, monthly, and weekend patterns can be applied to each base flow at a junction, providing the ultimate flexibility for estimating sanitary loads throughout a long-term continuous simulation.
InfoSWMM is quickly becoming the must-have solution
for comprehensive enterprise-wide geospatial urban
drainage engineering. With an intuitive working
environment and new cutting-edge features and
improvements, V4 Generation delivers unmatched
capabilities to the wastewater industry, backed
by unparalleled technical support. "Just
eight months ago, we introduced the world to InfoSWMM
and set a new standard of excellence in urban
drainage modeling and management software,"
said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and Chief
Operating Officer of MWH Soft. "Now we're
pleased to introduce another major evolutionary
release that underscores our ongoing commitment
to delivering superior value. InfoSWMM is not
only the world's first and only urban drainage
modeling solution certified by the National Association
of GIS-Centric Software (NAGCS); its powerful
hydraulic computational engine is also endorsed
by the USEPA and certified by FEMA. We are proud
to ship a significantly refined tool set that
will have an immediate impact on our clients'
productivity and performance."
