  2. Network overview window: split up of subcatchment areas with different runoff id

    It would be very usefull to have in the Network Overview window a summation of the different subcatchment areas, sort by Runoff surface ID.

  3. Faster release Exchange license

    After a user uses the Exchange license, it takes ages before the license is released again so another user can use it.

  4. Copying view from one network to another

    It would be useful to be able to take the view from one open network (X, Y and Zoom level) and apply it quickly to another network - e.g. to do a quick visual comparison between the two networks.

  5. Know which master database refers to a working/results folder

    Create a means to know which master database is connected to a working / results folder. i.e. to go from the long name of the working / results folder to the ICM master database. A simple text file within the folder could give the name of the master database and version of ICM,

  7. Correct calculation of volume within storage node when using porosity

    Currently when a porosity value is applied to a storage node, the porosity is only applied for storage array entries which are below ground level. Storage array entries above ground level are assumed to have a porosity of 100%. Between the highest storage array level value below ground and the lowest storage array level value above ground the porosity is assumed to increase linearly between the value you applied and 100%. i.e. the storage is assumed to be conical.
    This should be corrected. The porosity value applied should be applied to the whole storage array both above and below ground.…

  8. 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…

  9. Export river cross sections for an ICM model

    At present, ICM river cross sections can only be exported to dwg one by one. It would be helpful to be able to export all the modelled cross sections in a single operation (eg via data export centre)

  10. Show data errors

    Mike + added a function called "show data errors" in its new product in 2021, which can display objects that lack necessary field information and generate a table. This function can improve the ability of model engineers to deal with model errors more quickly. I hope ICM can add this function

  11. ICM Status bar to show more significant figures

    The status bar currently only displays levels (ground model level, water depth) to 1 decimal place. 2 Decimal places would be much more useful, Especially to ensure a node is at a low point or in the gutter invert..

  12. 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?

  14. 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…

  15. Speed up interfaces with 2D zones with millions of elements (make it a multicore process)

    The interface for large 1D-2D models is very slow. While moving through the geoplan every time it takes about ten seconds to load and show the location. We noticed that in this time only 1 of the 32 CPU is used for 100%. We tried 2 complete different videocards (Quadro K2000 vs Quadro M6000 24GB) but that did not make any difference (both slow). The interface/geoplan works fine when we do not display the 2D zone. We tried lot of things that were suggested by your supportdesk, but it seems like that this is something that will only really improve…

  16. 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

  17. Inserting channels into topography

    Being able to insert channels into terrain rather than editing in 12D or other software would be more practical for smaller firms to turn around modelling ideas.

    Landscape packages allow terrain meshes to be manipulated with tools that sink into mesh easily. Channels and swales need slope, not simply vertical depression to model correctly. XPStorm allows 1D modelling but this isn't useful for presentations and Civil 3d and 12d are catching up quickly now that rational method is being phased out.

  18. Ground Surface Comparison with sceanarios

    I am trying to calculate the excavation/fill volume by comparing my existing model with the proposed one. I know we can open simulation results with “As alternate results for comparison” which allows us to compare flooding depth from two different scenarios. I expect to have something like this for ground surface as well so that we can see the different ground elevation visually and/or numerically.

    Would it be possible to expand on this request, is this is a projection being referenced, a rainfall grid or something else? Thanks.

  20. Interpolation of levels

    It happens too often that while merging different models, you suddenly need a different timestep for your level-file. The only way to do this now, is remake your level completely. It would be better to (when changing the timestep of your level) ICM would ask what do : automatically interpolate the new in between time steps, put the in between time steps on zero,...
