  1. Directory structure on Workgroup Data Server

    We are working with more and more people, projects and countries on the same Workgroup Data Server, as the cost of a new server for each country are quite high. Unfortunately, there is no way to somehow make a directory structure on the Workgroup Data Server so we can arrange things by country for example. For now, a country prefix in front of a project works, but with hundreds of projects on the server this is not optimal.

  2. License management functions

    As ICM is fundamentally a workgroup environment, so shared across multiple offices and multiple users, we need to be able to understand license usage of user interfaces and simulation engines. We need ICM to log usage so we can then develop tools to interpret that information or build this into ICM so we can see usage. We often have instances when users cannot get licenses but there is no way to log this so we can establish a business case for purchasing more licenses. Similar with simulation engines we need to be able to report usage to demonstrate the need…

    We are looking at licensing improvements which can be leveraged, we might not be able to get all the specific information requested but are looking to make improvements which would help drive a better understanding of the seat utilisation.

  3. 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,...

  4. Customization of Grid Windows in InfoWorks ICM

    Allow custom grid window layouts in InfoWorks ICM, much like the Property window. Allow the user to reorganize the columns, change the column widths, or hide unnecessary columns, and save it as a layout to be applied as a default.

  5. leave Layers and Themes window open

    Could you make it possible to work in the Geoplan without having to close the Layers and Themes window? It would make switching Layers on and off much easier. Alternatively you could add a separate window to switch layers on and off.

  6. Removing missing GIS-layers

    If a GIS-layer for a model is missing you cannot remove the reference to it because the layer isn't visible in the GIS layer control window. So you keep getting the error message each time you open the model. Why not make missing GIS-layers visible in the GIS layer control window ('greyed out' or with a suffix '(missing)' in the description). Then you can select it and remove it.

  7. Floating licence manager improvements

    Updating the floating licence manager (which has to happen occasionally) is very difficult to organise because all licences (clients, engines, …) need to be checked in prior to the update to avoid corruption of the system. In a large company with many users (if not the majority of them) working remotely, this is almost impossible to achieve. So either there should be more flexibility in the update system, or there should be a functionality for a system administrator to force check-in licences if users don't react at the request.

  8. Background tasks overall progress visible in ICM

    I think waiting for ICM to finish the task without having an idea about when this might be is not productive at all. Tasks like opening a simulation, graph something in the model, running a statistical template should be done accompanied by a loading bar, which will show the overall progress of that task.

  9. Allow user default sorting of Master Database, and sorting of Layers and Themes properties

    In InfoWorks ICM, allow the user to choose the default sorting of the Master Database and allow sorting of the Layers and Themes in Geoplan Properties and Themes.

    I would like to be able to have the master database automatically/default sorted based on something else (description/ID/User/Date).

    Would also like to sort the Layers & Themes dialogue, as it seems pretty random (not even alphabetical!) and often difficult to find the layer I'm looking for.

  10. no flag update when updating via CSV

    In ICM, when only updating a value via CSV file (Network -> Import -> Update from CSV files), the data flag should be left untouched instead of being "blanked" or updated with a new value (based on the "Flag to use for new/updated data" in the 'import from CSV data" screen)

  14. Improvement on the Numerical Correction Process in ICM

    The current procedure for ‘Numerical Correction’ in ICM requires users to remove any existing values to calculate the correction (for Preismann and Base flow) before the inbuilt routine is run. If this wasn't made the calculated correction values are added on top of any existing value thereby reducing the total storage in the system. However, the correction for 'Storage Compensation' deletes any existing values before calculating the compensation value. Therefore, there is inconsistency in the approach which has the potential to reduce the total storage at a node. Either, the inbuilt process for 'Numerical Correction' should be revisited or the…

  15. Realign Feature Tool

    For XPSWMM and Infoworks (any GUI editor you have actually):

    Moving an existing line substantially is something that occasionally happens. If we could do this without having to delete the entire thing, or click and drag each vertex one at a time, it would be a big help at times.

    A new feature I’d like to see for lines/polygons is a ‘realign feature’ tool. When selected, if you clicked on a vertex in a line or on a polygon boundary (single click and release), it would ‘grab’ that vertex and allow you to move it. Once you place it by…

  16. Total sediment ( SF1+SF2).

    In the result “graph” and “table” window add a new field for “total sediment” which presents the mass flow and the concentration of “sf1”+”sf2”

  17. Local water quality settings.

    User can set local water quality parameters and local initial condition of Water Quality in ICM rather than globally.
    Local WQ parameter should at least contain decay rate, DO process coefficient etc..
    As for the local initial condition, DO concentration and other pollutants concentration could be set for each river reach.
    For example, for one node or one link it could have a local “decay” in itself. And for the initial condition every node or link can have different intial pollution concentrations.

  18. Modelling of Septicity

    As a sewer modeller I have occasionally been asked about odour generation in sewer networks. I have noticed that DO (dissolved oxygen) and BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) are both inputs in the wastewater and trade-waste model groups of Infoworks ICM SE. Given that these are possible inputs in a sewer model, is it possible to model the consumption of DO by BOD within the network to determine where and when the sewage becomes anaerobic and prone to odour generation? This would be particularly useful if you wanted to model the addition of a high BOD low volume trade waste stream…

  20. Agricultural pollution.

    Including agricultural pollution in the model. Such as fertilization and pesticide application. These pollutions can buildup rapidely on the surface and washoff during irrigation and rainfall period. Some common model softwares such as SWAT and WASP have this simulation process.
