Hydraulic Modeling and GISby Lori Armstrong
Synopses & Reviews
GIS and hydraulic modeling are complementary technologies. By integrating them with each other, water utility companies can reap substantial time and cost savings. A well-designed integration of the two systems provides ready access to mission-critical data. As a result, risk-of-failure analysis, repair and replacement, capacity assessment, capital improvement planning, and numerous other water utility applications run more efficiently and more effectively. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS identifies the challenges that must be navigated and offers best practices for achieving an integration that will be sustainable over the long term.
Book News Annotation:
Geographical information systems (GIS) are now sophisticated and stable enough that water utilities can integrate them with hydraulic models long used in moving water. This handbook identifies steps and challenges in leveraging GIS data to create a geospatially based modeling solution. There are no recipes, because every situation is so different, but a lot of principles and methods. The topics are benefits, principles, network connectivity, integration in practice, and GIS tools for model maintenance. There is no index.

Hydraulic Modeling and GIS is a best practices guide for developing a sustainable hydraulic model and maintenance strategy that makes optimal use of your GIS. This book addresses GIS-centered concepts and applications that will help you understand and improve hydraulic model structures, advanced spatial analysis, network connectivity and topology, hydraulic model development and maintenance strategies, and GIS database design. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS is a practical handbook for GIS managers, engineers, and decision makers in the water and wastewater utility industry.
Hydraulic Modeling and GIS explains best practices for integrating hydraulic models with ArcGIS® software. In the past, water utilities have not integrated their hydraulic models with their GIS. This book offers a practical and sustainable system-management strategy to integrate hydraulic models with ArcGIS to enable quick analysis of water utility data for capacity, risk of failure, and replacement and refurbishment needs. Implementing this sustainable, merged hydraulic data model will help water industry professionals reduce time spent on system updates, reduce water issue response time and maintenance, and so, reduce costs.
