  1. zoom to selection

    I am using a Ruby script that dynamically updates the current selection.

    I would like to be able to be invoke the "zoom to selection" user-interface function from within the script so that the progress of the script can be viewed by end-users. It would also be useful in developing and checking the logic of the script.

  2. Layer list theme view

    Theme view that shows the background layer themes. So if I have created a theme on a layer I'd like to be able to see that theme without going in to the layer list properties etc.

  3. Add 2D result labels for ICM mesh elements

    I would like to display the 2D results (depth, elevation, velocity) at each individual GRID cell using labels.
    This is currently available in XPSWMM, so I would like the same functionality in InfoWorks ICM as I would rather not have to export the data to GIS.

  4. Additional storage calculations

    Can we please revisit the assumptions in the additional storage routines.

    In a world where everyone has access to accurate property location data, via customer seed points and subcatchments can be any shape or size. The distances between properties and sewers can be much more accurately determined in the calculation than is currently the case, based on the existing A/4L.

    The calculation also makes no allowance for private inspection chambers, which in many instances would provide more volume than the pipe.

    Two versions of the equation driven by a new field in the subcatchment would also be better allowing lateral…

  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. 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.

    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.

  7. 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

  8. ICM - Statistics Template: Daily events

    I want to be able to break my events into daily values. Currently this would require setting up 7 separate templates each with the unique day set under the 'Time Window' button. I want a tick option added that will allow me to do this within the single template.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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).

  14. Export Max Flood Contours - Elevation

    It would add value to ICM if users could export the Maximum Flood Contours as Elevations in the same way that we can for Depth. This would be particularly useful as currently Depth is the only property that be be exported as an ASCII Grid file.

    It appears that the contour intervals used in the export is taken from the "Flood" theme. Perhaps under "Map Type" there could be options to add "Flood Elevation - Filled/Show Layers/Transparent/etc" and hence with a Flood Elevation map type chosen the Max Flood Contours could be exported as elevations.

  15. 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)

  17. 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?

  18. 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. bottom opening

    Beside an upstanding vertical orrifice, it would be practical to be able to implement horizontal 'bottom holes' from one node to an underlaying node. e.g when a ditch can drain to an underlying conduit by means of a bottom opening. This might be a more straight forward implementation then the weir circumference workround method which is now often used. if possible both circular and rectangular.

  20. As a user I need to represent and optimise for throttled discharge from subcatchments to node or conduit objects

    Many cities are limiting maximum stormwater dicharge to drainage networks.
    ICM should include more efficient modelling regarding
    - Limiting stormwater flows from subcatchments via throttle requirement (e.g. 0-10 l/s*ha subcatchment), suggesting a new subcatchment data field.
    - And quickly analyse how much stormwater (e.g. 10 m³ ) needs to be managed/retained on each subscatchment site via SUDS such as greenroofs, swales, etc. in order to meet and optimise throttle requirements.
