  1. Inflow files with different timesteps or ability to import multiple inflow files to a Run file.

    For inflow files, sometimes you have 15-min data for one gauge, and 5-min data for another location, and you want to import them both to the model. It would be helpful to be able to import inflow files with different timesteps for the same date range, so you don't have to manipulate data outside of ICM in excel. Or, allowing the ability to import multiple inflow files to the same run.

  2. ICM - Import of .XP files

    Current workflow for importing a XPRAFTS or XPSWMM/XPSTORM model into ICM is to export the XP model to a .XPX file. This is problematic as a user will need to own a XP licence to complete this step and is not always the case. This is particularly an issue for those that wish to update or migrate XPRAFTS models as the software is no longer being sold.

  3. Seamless Import/Export of Civil 3d pipe networks into ICM.

    Seamless Import/Export of Civil 3d pipe networks into ICM. It just make sense now the companies are joined rather than having to work-around/manipulate data between the two.

  5. Overhaul to the Hyperlinks system to allow attached data to be transportable

    ICM and Infoasset databases offer a system that allow hyperlinked documents to be connected to the database. Primarily this to allow survey, as laid and other background data to be available to the user and is a powerful function that if used correctly would allow databases to become much easier / quicker to check, improving quality and confidence. Currently the models are abstract representations of the systems, and to check detail requires arduous library time retracing other people's steps. Having the data bundled with the model is a significant improvement.

    However, two practical problems arise, since many different organizations work…

  7. TSDBs to produce logs of SQL queries

    This is important to assist troubleshooting issues related with TSDB performance during implementation and maintenance of TSDBs. The log should include the exact queries produced by their streams when data is updated.

  8. As a user, when transmit a model in XPSWMM, I would like the externally referenced surface, soil and landuse also be packaged.

    In XPSWMM, when 2D data are referenced externally, they are not packaged when transmit the model

  9. As an XPSWMM user, I would like to be able to import flow data from SWMM5 Inflow/outflow formats. So that I can import results from CUHP.

    For the latest versions of CUHP https://mhfd.org/resources/software/ , it is using the SWMM5 text inflow/outflows format for results. Therefore the old conversion tool in XPSWMM no longer works.

  10. Export both the result and the underlying property fields

    When the model results are displayed on the webpage through Exchange, since the basic properties need to be viewed, the corresponding basic properties of the results need to be exported first, and then the results are matched to the basic properties according to the ID for display. It is hoped that the option of exporting the basic properties and results together could be added

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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,…

  14. 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.

  15. Enhance import/export of SWMM models for ICM platform

    Enhance model import from SWMM5 INP files to include a few of the Open Data Import Center /Open Data Export Center options:
    • Only update existing records
    • Ignore existing objects
    • Overwrite, Merge, etc.
    • Export Selection only
    Ultimately we want to have a central model copy but have the ability to easily push out and in simple EPASWMM INP files for developers and others. When a new SWMM INP file comes back from another modeler, we’d like a good way to update the existing model from that.
    It would be great if this applied to both SWMM and…

  16. InfoSWMM from InfoSewer should allow the user to pick a scenario on import. It is a feature of InfoSWMM to convert an InfoSewer MXD and IE

    We only allow the user to import the active scenario in InfoSewer. If a user does not have InfoSewer then he or she must guess which is the active scenario. It would better to have a dialog to allow the user to import their selected and needed scenario.

  17. In ICM add AutoCAD layers to usertext1 on import

    When importing from autocad layer mapping can be used to create a model layout for things like 2D Mesh zones but all created objects are null. I have written an SQL to apply parameters to all null mesh zones and roughness zones and import each layer individually. If the autocad layer was written to usertext1 I could import all at once with a saved layer mapping and then enter all parameters by selecting usertext1

  18. Support for different table schemas from SQL Server in the TSDB

    We have a SQL Server database containing flow survey and rainfall data. All of the raw data is saved in one table and views are created for each monitor via a stored procedure,

    We use schemas to control permissions on the database tables. Only the database owner can add or delete to the raw table (dbo schema) while any user can read from the views ("user interface" schema).

    Currently, TSDB can see tables in any schema but can only read from those in the default (dbo) schema. Therefore, an error happens when trying to read from a view that has…
