  1. Extend cross section lines

    When there is a cross section line present, it would be good if these could automatically be extended by a given distance to the left/right to ensure sufficient coverage, especially when sampling from a ground model.

  2. River bank cumulative flow

    It would be great to have the ability to graph bank flows and have a cumulative flow result available.

  3. Time varying roughness values for rivers

    As vegetation changes throughout the seasons, it would be great if we could also have time varying roughness patterns for river reaches.

  4. Bank marker distinctions

    It would be good if cross sections for rivers could be marked with left and right bank markers within the cross sections themselves.

  5. Optional channel to river reachs option

    The way ICM identifies the centre-line of the river reach is by using the point with the lowest invert level. Regardless of the shape of the channels of how much is the value of the X coordinate, didn't affect the appearance of the section to generate, I hope to be able to add a function, can recognize the center line of the river, and the X coordinate is used to define a mapping point distance from the centerline of the channel of the (negative value on behalf of the center line on the left side of the river, when the…

  6. Support for more than two simulations in long sections

    When evaluating the effects of raising and lowering roughness it would be helpful to display three or more simulations in the same long section; at the moment it is only possible to display 2.

  7. Lateral inflows from event data for rivers

    Currently it is possible to add lateral inflows to a river via subcatchments, if we could also do this directly from event data or TSDB that would be great.

  8. Infoworks ICM cross section

    Provide a function to easily assess cross sections of the ground model, similar to the XPSWMM function

  9. Dissolve river reaches into multiple river reaches

    It would be great to have the capability to generate automatically and perfectly snapped nodes in all/some of the X-sections of one/multiple river reaches in ICM and therefore split that river reach into various river reaches (kind of the opposite tool of the river reach merging tool). The two main applications for this are 1) If you need to connect a pipe to a river reach and you need to add a new node that will interpolate a new X-section somewhere and will cause the river reach polygon to be outdated, so you need to generate it again... it is…

  11. Transfer roughness values after cross section extension

    When a cross section is extended, the roughness values are not populated automatically when it is probably valid in a significant number of cases to carry forward the existing roughnesses of the cross section end points.

  12. River reach theming

    It would be great if a river reach could be themed individually across the left and right banks and if theming were more flexible for storage areas too.

  13. Intelligently select nodes in river reaches

    When clicking on a node over a subcatchment, the software can recognise the user is after the node. When the same is done for a node on a river reach, the node is not automatically selected but rather the choice is presented to the user.

  14. Infer ground levels only for non existent entries

    At the moment it is possible to infer ground levels for several object types, but it tends to be either infer all entries from ground level or none, it would be good if only the non entered values were inferred. You might have survey data to a point and want to infer from ground level above this.

  15. Only update interpreted points on Bank Line when updating from Ground Model

    When updating bank lines from ground model it would be useful to have an option was available to only update the interpreted points, therefore retaining vertices heights from cross sections and surveyed points. Or an option to easily delete the interpreted points, so they can be updated.

  16. Rating curves / equations as downstream boundaries

    At the moment we can use 'user control' links to act upstream of the DS boundary. These links have head/flow/power as their inputs. It would be useful to have a dedicated object that could be either a look up table of levels (rather than heads) and discharges, or an equation that would define the level / discharge relationship. Note that if an equation option were selected then it would need to be multi-part to allow for a changing relationship as water goes out of bank.

  17. Implicit SQL link between River reaches and associated storage area

    It should be possible to write a validation query to check if the lowest vertex of a River reach bank line does not lie below the ground level of the storage area it overflows to. With an implicit link between the river reach and the left and right storage areas it overflows to, the query would be easy:

    Object type: river reach
    SELECT WHERE min(leftbank.Z) < leftnode.groundlevel;
    SELECT WHERE min(right
    bank.Z) < rightnode.groundlevel;
