Geospatial Hydrologic Modeling Extension HEC-GeoHMS, User’s Manual. Public Domain That information is also provided in Appendix E of this manual for. This tutorial is designed to expose you to basic functions in HEC-GeoHMS ( ArcGIS version) to create input files for hydrologic modeling with HEC-HMS. Step 7: Terrain processing and HEC-GeoHMS model development The DEM, land use and soil data used in this tutorial are already clipped.

This tool will verify all the input datasets. Post Your Answer Discard By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy tugorial cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies.

Obstructions represent blocked flow areas areas with no water and no flow. Once the table is created, create the following fields in it:. Entering Flow data and boundary conditions.

Subwatersheds delineated from a set of points are therefore by definition non overlapping because the watershed draining to a point that is within another watershed is excluded from the subwatershed of the downstream point. Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics This function copies all the project specific files that you have created.

Before you proceed, it is a good practice to perform a quality check on the data to make sure no erroneous information is imported from GIS. Slope Grid file name: After the computations are complete, the BasinSlope field in the input Subbasin feature class is populated.

If you want to split the sub-basin at the point displayed in the map, you can use the subbasin divide tool, and click at the point displayed on the map. Close the dockable window, and save the map document.


We are modifying the editing environment because when we digitize the Tule tributary we want its downstream end coincide with the downstream end of the upper Baxter Reach. The output is Adjoint Catchment, with a default name AdjointCatchment that can be overwritten.

We will skip parameters associated with computing rainfall as these numbers should come from detailed analysis of the watershed. Each catchment also has its Length and Area attributes. These parameters are assigned using Subbasin Parameters option.

The ArcCatalog-view of the data folder is shown below: Similarly merge two more sub-basins as shown below: For this exercise, choose 25 km 2 as the threshold area, tutlrial click OK.

We do not have any meteorologic data temperaturerainfall etc at this point.

Step by Step: Flood Hazard Mapping

Bank lines are used to distinguish the main channel from the overbank floodplain areas. A description tutoril some of the land classes and their associated numbers can be found here.

Click OK on the series of messages about computing times. Perform the re-classification of classes Eventually, we are going to use these land use classes and soil group type, in conjunction with runoff curve numbers CNto create the curve number grid.

You will see that two folders: You may get a message asking you to index fields. The bridge should now look similar to the figure shown below: The Basin Auto Name function assigns names to sub-basins. Confirm that the name of the batch point feature hev is BatchPoint.


This tool is thtorial to convert units. Creating the Flowpath Layer The flowpath layer contains three types of lines: If you face problems in creating Project Area, just delineate a watershed using the point delineation tool in Arc Hydro for the Project Point feature, and load this watershed polygon into ProjectArea feature class.

Either a segment may tutkrial a head segment, or it may be defined as a segment between two segment junctions. Adjoint Catchment Polygons file name: Open the Manning table, and see how the values are stored.

When you come close to the junction, zoom-in, and you will notice that the tool will automatically try to snap or hug! This concludes the terrain processing part.

Sitemap Contact Terms of Use Privacy. Confirm the input River name, and click OK. If cells geohmx higher elevation surround a cell, the water is trapped in that cell and cannot flow.

Add cngrid gohms number grid from Layers folder to the map document. Terrain Preprocessing – Raster Data. This process will create two files: You now have a very useful dataset for use in several hydrologic models and studies. Set the Agree parameters as shown. We can treat the main stem of the Baxter River as one river and the Tributary as the second river. The vector data will be stored in a feature dataset also named Layers within the geodatabase associated with the map document.
