  1. Attribute table copy function

    A better copy function between networks might be usefull: e.g. Also copy the 'link head discharge' or 'conduit shape geometry' tables when copying a link from one network to an other. Or at least a popup allowing you to select which lists to copy or not.

  2. bottom opening

    Beside an upstanding vertical orrifice, it would be practical to be able to implement horizontal 'bottom holes' from one node to an underlaying node. e.g when a ditch can drain to an underlying conduit by means of a bottom opening. This might be a more straight forward implementation then the weir circumference workround method which is now often used. if possible both circular and rectangular.

  3. As an organisation we would like to export the data exposed in show details view

    As an organisation we would like to export the data exposed in show details view in order to assist with reporting in relation disc storage/ utilisation i.e. ID associated with Model Group.
    We store all our DAP models within a single Db so collecting manually is time consuming

  4. Import HAZUS data into InfoWorks ICM Damage Functions

    HAZUS data can be accessed from the backend using MS SQL. Could an import function be added to ICM which would allow a connection to the database and import data as needed to create damage functions?

  5. Better documentation on XPX/XPTABLES to map UI element to variables

    I would like for Innovyze to create a complete list of all the codes that can be used in XPX or XPTables, with descriptions of how they are used, and/or make it very easy to find out what those codes are.

    For example, NKLASS is used in XPX to change the conduit shape. In XPX, the NKLASS codes are just numbers that correspond to particular shapes. To figure out which number is which takes making a dummy model . I was hoping that you have a full data definition somewhere that tells what all these things are.

    In XPTables, however,…

  6. Select objects outside polygon in SQL

    In Infoworks ICM the SQL select has a spatial search option where I can, for example, select all nodes within a 2D zone.
    I am wanting to select all nodes outside the 2D zones, and this I am unable to do as inverting the selection will select all objects. not just nodes.
    I want to do this as I am only trying to run a subcatchment of a larger model and wish to change the node type of the nodes outside the 2D zone so they dont try to connect to the surface. Infoworks seems to prevent a model from…

    Hello, thank you for this. In this particular example could you invert the selection, which I appreciate will select all objects other than the nodes inside the 2D zone and then hold down CTRL while opening the Nodes grid? This should open the nodes grid with only the selected nodes active so that the flood type can be changed if needed.

  7. I would like to create a template for model import from GIS to XPSWMM

    When you go exchange data from GIS to XPSWMM you need to find all the fields you want each time and rename all the field for GIS compatibility. I would like to create a standard template once and use that template for each model and each time I need to exchange data. I may even create smaller templates to import catchments, hydrology data, and networks separately.

  8. Include weirs and orifices in xpswmm ensemble statistics

    Please include weirs and orifices in the ARR Ensemble Statistics summary. Currently, only conduits or natural channels are included.

  9. ICM sims updated with better control on sims outcome

    I think waiting a big time for a sim to be done and then because the sim results disk gets full, loosing all of the simulated data is something that should be prevented from the time someone sends the simulation. A warning should be issued when you send the sim, looking at the remaining free disk size, Also maybe showing a estimation of how much space you will need.

  11. Model results as TVD connectors

    We'd like to have model results as an input in the TVD connectors. An example is where we have observed flows that we would like to use at a tributary and then switch to catchment flows when the observations run out. We know this can be done using a set up of sluices and dummy objects but it would be a lot more elegant to simply have the subcatchment as Input B. I'm sure there are plenty of other examples of where using model results as an input would be useful.

  12. Sim Slots

    There should be an option to select to limit sim slots to be used by a model so other models dont go in waiting when running sims simulataneously .

    Hello there,

    If my understanding of the request is correct then I believe that this capability does already exist in the agent options. If you are able to start the InfoWorks ICM agent manager, then here it is possible to set a maximum number of concurrent simulations which can be active at any one time.

    Thanks,
    Pascal

  13. Calculating volume storage on river reaches

    In the application of ICM, we often count the regulation volume of river channels.But at the moment we can only calculatethe total available volume of channels/river reaches between two cross sections by using length and cross sectional areas.If the number of river sections is very large in the model,it will take a lot of time and effort to accomplish this work. It would be great to have the tool to calculate volume storage on river reaches automatically.

  14. Ability to access databases where Workgroup Data Server and databases don't reside on same server

    With the large amounts of data generated it would be beneficial if a supported configuration would be to have a WDS installed on a server but pointing at databases (and solves etc) over the network on a remote storage system (such as NAS). This would make the whole solution far more scalable as the need arose.

  15. Have multiple Workgroup Data Servers

    I want to be able to segregate databases between different parts of the business so they only have visibility of, and access those specific to them. Having the ability to install multiple WDS on a single server makes sense from a cost/configuration/data segregation perspective but currently this isn't possible.

  16. Interconnect 2 longprofiles

    When 2 sim results are placed on 1 long profile (with the Open as alternate result option) only the water heights are used to visualize sim2. Sometimes these pipes have different invert levels which makes a comparison on 1 long profile rather useless. The alternative is to open 2 long profiles (one with sim1 and one with sim2) but playing through a simulation requires doing it step by step. Could a possibility be added to link the 2 long profiles so when Play is selected from the toobar, both simulation are played as the sims were on the same long…

  17. I want the Show Maxima function to apply to Pipe Shear Stress

    Currently, the "Show Maxima" results button doesn't apply to pipe Shear Stress (calculated through QM, Quality Module).

    It seems pipe Shear Stress is the only thing that Shear Stress is the only thing the "Show Maxima" results button doesn't apply to.

  18. TVD connector input fields longer than 64 characters

    The "input" fields for TVD connectors are currently limited to 64 characters. I have TSDB streams with names longer than 64 characters, and I would like to be able to use those streams as inputs to the TVD connectors.

  19. Python scripting API for ICM

    Our team uses Python scripting extensively for data analysis and manipulation, while Ruby is foreign to us.
    Please provide scripting support for Python for model manipulation and analysis.

  20. I want Long-Sections of a pipe to show the unconnected pipes which cross

    On a Long-Section of a pipe, I would like ICM to show the unconnected pipes which cross that long-section. This would illustrate potential pipe clashes.

    I imagine the unconnected pipes would be shown as circles on the long-section similar to how connected pipes are currently shown.

    Interesting idea.

    We need more information on the problem of pipe clashes. Are these unconnected pipes in the model or are they referencing Asset networks, or Water networks?

    How granular of a view does one need? I.e. are you interesting in generally where these crossing occur, or are you trying to identify how close you can cross something else?
