  1. Create a ground model using LIDAR data in a .tif format

    LIDAR data is now typically stored in a .tif format as opposed to .asc, and so it would be useful to be able to create a ground model in Infoworks WS Pro using .tif data.

  2. Addition of Calendar function to DemandWatch Pro

    The current DemandWatch Pro doesn't have any functionality to set national holidays, even though water consumption should change on holidays greatly. Some national holidays are different yearly, so it will be great if we can define national holidays in some ways in DemandWatch Pro.

  3. Display Warnings when Tank Stage/Volume Curve Inconsistent with Levels

    As far as I can tell this is an EPANET bug, but say your tank levels are set to minimum 4 and maximum 20. If you have a stage/volume curve that goes below 4, your tank will supply water forever from a level of 4 feet.

  5. inlet riser option for tank

    Have an option to specify an Inlet Riser Pipe for the tank element. This would hold the fill head at a constant, set at the riser pipe elevation, but allow the tank discharge head vary with the tank level.

  6. As a user, I would like an automated method to allocate demands from meter points through lateral polyline to pipelines.

    I need a way to allocate demand from a meter (point meter) to the pipe (polyline) based on the lateral connection (polyline) at end points.

    Keep in mind:
    The features might not snap nor connect to pipes

  7. Add zoom to and map navigation ability in the report tables for InfoWater Pro

    I use both Bentley and Innovyze water modeling software and i have noticed that the Bentley software allows you to zoom to elements from the report tables and allows you to pan, click, review properties, etc. while the report table is open. It would be really nice if Innovyze could include a zoom to feature in the report tables (similar to what is already included in the DB editor), and allow the user to pan around in the map and click on elements while the report table is open.

  9. Simple Criticality Assessment Manager reporting in InfoWater Pro

    I want a simple report for each pounded area between valves, reporting the length of pipe affected, number of customers, number of critical customers, amount of demand taken offline by isolation, and possibly the total volume of demand lost between a specified time range.

  10. Statistics in Demand Field Suming

    I notice that the software seems to sum the individual demands in the DB editor with their rounded values. This caused a significant discrepancy when summing the demands in the individual pressure zones but they didn't add up the to total system demand shown in the run report. It seems like the summation in the DB editor should not be rounding the individual demands and then doing a sum, but rather using the true demands (to the decimal place they was loaded) and then doing a sum and rounding that overall sum.

  11. Consistency in Plots Titles for Simulation and Live Data Plot Reports

    Consistency in Plots Titles for Simulation and Live Data Plot Reports

    In Graph tool plot title include ‘Asset ID’ and ‘Node ID’ e.g. “Hausegill SR (Reservoir: 004T4011)”. However in the Simulation report in only shows ‘Node ID ‘ e.g. ”004T4011”
    Could it be made consistent and for the Simulation report to include both ‘Asset ID’ and ‘Node ID’ so plot titles are the same across different graphs components.

  12. I want to be able to customize the minor loss table for pipe networks.

    It would be nice if the user could modify the minor loss table for pipes. Whether it be changing the minor loss values, deleting, or editing the existing values. Since we all have our own resource we typical reference for these values, it would be nice to import those values and have that database saved in Infowater to make it easy to add all bends, etc. while building a model.

    Thanks!

  13. Allow decimals in number of properties assigned to customer points

    When setting up future demand scenarios we are often provided increase in population over an existing area of the network, reflecting infill growth across the area. However we can't distribute this across existing customer points because only a whole number of properties can be assigned to each customer point.

    Demand scaling could be used for this but has a number of drawbacks:
    - To use demand scaling we need to change the area code to reflect development areas, which means we can't use area codes to analyse DMAs.
    - It also means the demand statistics for a network does not…

  14. CAM Enhancement

    CAM Enhancements

    A few things to consider that I think would make your tool better than others I have seen/used:


    1. The ability to export the pounded areas into GIS. It seems to me this shouldn’t be difficult as you are color coding them now in your software

    2. The ability to export the other results to GIS like closed elements, isolated junctions, etc… into GIS.

    3. The ability to identify the number of customers (i.e. meters) and the number of critical customers (i.e. meters) isolated for each pounded area. This would require a GIS point layer with meters associated with pipes and…

  15. Sort selection sets/ re-order them

    Would be very useful if you could either sort selection set orders or move selections up or down the list. This would make it much faster to find the selection set you want in a large list (e.g. DMA selection sets in alphabetical order)

  16. Sorting 'Live Data Points’ by "Finish Date and Time" column

    Sorting 'Live Data Points’ by "Finish Date and Time" column

    In ‘Live Data Points’ tab it is not possible to sort items by grey fields such as "Start Date and Time" or "Finish Date and Time".
    I want to sort on "Finish Date and Time" so that assets with missing or old data are on the top of the list and can be investigated. If possible even if it is temporary data refreshed upon linked with Pi could sorting be added? If not sorting option should be disabled on columns that are not possible to use.

  17. Time varying initial water age profile

    As a user it would be great to be able to add a time varying initial water age profile for transfer nodes. This would allow us to assess water age within the distribution network without having to combine models.

  19. InfoWater: Report volume stored in tanks

    I can calculate volume from level, but it's an extra step and requires that I copy the run results out to Excel. It's even more difficult if I have a non-circular tank. Please include tank volume in the tank results and in the "System Demand" report.

  20. Option to display in the same time assignments of properties to nodes and to pipes

    Add an option to map to display in the same time assignments of properties to nodes and to pipes. At the moment it is not possible as the 'Customer Point Demand Assignment' option is a radio button.
