  1. would like whether summer or winter event to be automatically exposed in sim title

    would like whether summer or winter event to be automatically exposed in sim title so when undertaking RPA analysis for both summer and winter events this is exposed automatically rarther than having to rename sims prior to running RPA

  4. Call the 'Total storage calculation' function from a ruby script and write the output into a csv-file

    It would be a great feature to call the 'Total storage calculation' function from a ruby script and write the output into a csv-file.

    If it is not possible to call the build-In function from ruby, it would also help to call the 'storage calculation function' from InfoWorks ICM UI for a set of nodes (maybe from a selection list) and write the output directly to csv-file(s).

  5. Change coordinate system of a model more easily

    We have a large project running for several years and our design team is working in one coordinate frame. Our clients models are all in another coordinate frame. Our team would like to reproject the models into the design coordinate frame but there is no easy way of doing this. Currently, we are exporting the models to TAB files (table by table) and importing them again after changing the coordinate system. This is time consuming and introduces a lot of potential for human error. There is also no way to (I know of) to maintain all the scenarios so we…

  6. I would like to be-able to reorder scenarios in the drop down in ICM

    II would like to be able to change order of scenarios (after Base). So be able to move up scenarios or down scenarios in the drop down list. I often have to delete scenarios or created amended versions of copied scenarios and this often results in a pretty messed up list of scenarios

  7. 2D worst case analysis

    I would like to be able to analyse a number of simulations in terms of the worst flood depth per 2D mesh element. An integrated tool (along the lines of the already existing worst case grid output) would avoid the need to mess around in external GIS.

    RECEIVED  ·  pascal.lang responded

    Thank you for this idea addition, it is something we have been considering and building out plans for, if there are more specifics in terms of the exact outputs/comparisons you would like to see, please feel free to add so we can ensure these are captured.

  9. mel.meng@innovyze.com

    As an IT admin, I would like to install XPSWMM/XPSTORM using the MSI installer with flags to set the licensing options, so that I can automate the installation.

  10. Implement the Nash-Sutcliffe coefficient to evaluate the quality of the calibration

    Developp this tool would help the customer to analyze their calibration and justify the used coefficients.

  11. Ability to run ICM models on older versions of the engine

    As a user, I'd like to install the latest version of the ICM UI but run my models using older versions of the engine. This would allow me to work on projects whose results have been generated by previous versions of the engine without having to install the UI just for that project.

    Otherwise, when working on projects for different customers I have to install numerous versions of ICM. This quite time consuming, especially when users are restricted from installing software by IT policies.

    Ideally, the engine list would only show versions where Innovyze made changes which could impact on…

  12. Drain to 2D line source from subcatchment

    The current function allows rainfall runoff to be given to a node, link, multiple links and 2D point source, but not to 2D line source. We are modelling rivers with 2D meshes, but thinking to represent rainfall runoff with subcatchments, as it is more flexible. However, applying rainfall runoff to a 2D point source can mean that lots of water goes into a single mesh, which is not inappropriate in most cases. So, could you please enhance ICM so that we can drain to 2D line source?

  13. 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)

  14. I want to be able to open a layer list using Exchange (Ruby)

    As part of a ruby script, I would like to add a specific layer list to a network to enable a Spatial SQL to be run. This script needs to be run on all our networks as part of a regular update. We have 1100 models which would require an extensive manual activity.

    There is an existing method "WSOpenNetwork.openmolayer_list" but this i sonly available internally to Innovyze. Could you please make it available to all?

  15. Show worst case analysis on long sections

    I would like to be able to see the worst case across multiple simulations (highest water levels) along the 1d network when reviewing results. Essentially being able to visualize statistical report results in a long section.

  16. Urban (or modified) ReFH rainfall inputs

    ICM currently supports the use of ReFH And ReFH2 parameters. However, it does not support the Urban (or modified) ReFH rainfall that is more commonly used in urban environments. Please could ICM introduce the ability to use Urban ReFH parameters in their system.

  17. Long-sections: Centre Geoplan on the selected link

    It would be handy if the Geoplan centred on the selected link when selecting a long section. It seems every time select a long-section the windows split into two halves, one for the geoplan, the other for the long-section. As a result the link I just selected is seldom visible in the geoplan frame, meaning I have to manually re-center the geoplan before I can carry on selecting links for the long section.

  19. Add a result grid window for cross sections

    Currently there is not a grid results window to show all cross sections. Would be helpful to have one. Also would be good if the grid window can show geometric elements of each cross section, such as bank levels, flow area, wetted perimeter, hydraulic radius, critical depth, etc.

  20. 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.
