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.

There are situations where you need to define flows at additional locations, but for this tutorial we will use the typical case. Using the sketch tool on the editor toolbar, uttorial digitize bridge location just downstream of the tributary junction. You must have the same coordinate system for all the tutoriaal and data frames used for this tutorial or any GeoRAS project.
In addition, if you come across a structure eg. When you used the profile tool earlier to view the cross-section profile, the program used the underlying terrain to extract the elevations along the cutline. Comparing this catchment area with the contours, I think there is a mistake.

Again, select PF3 profile with highest flowand click OK. Flow Path Tracing The flow path defines the path of flow from the selected point to the outlet of the catchment following the steepest descent. Geohs Practices Recommended Practice: The next step is to prepare a look-up table that will have curve numbers for different combinations of land uses and soil groups.
Depending on your symbology, there is likely more elevation information than what is displayed that may be determining the catchment boundaries.

If you want to split the river segment at the selected point, you can just right click on the veohms inside the dockable window and split the river.
Similar to Ineffective flow areas, the positions and elevations of the intersection of this obstruction with cross-sections needs to be stored in a table.
The area with positive results meaning water surface is higher than the terrain is flood area, and the area with negative results is dry.
The Gehoms Centroid tool will create a Centroid point feature class to store the centroid of each sub-basin.

The display should look similar to the figure shown below and be zoomed in sufficiently so you can see and click on individual grid cells. We will explore only those parameters that do not require additional datasets or information. For this exercise, we will create three hypothetical profiles. This will help identify any errors in the input data and fix them, and run the simulation again, if gsohms.
This function will export the information on hydrologic elements nodes and linkstheir connectivity and related geographic information to a text file with. Again make sure you snap the starting point with the common end points of Upper Baxter Reach and Tule Tributary. We will only create an empty file that we can tutorizl inside HMS. Cross-section cutlines are used to extract the elevation data from the terrain to create a ground profile across channel flow.
Sometimes you will realize at the end! This function creates a grid of stream segments that have a unique identification. Management of models through ProjectPoint and ProjectArea let users see areas for which HMS basin models are already created, and also allow users to re-create models with different stream network threshold.
Double click at this point to finish digitizing the Tule Tributary. Open the attribute table of Longest Flow Path, and examine its attributes. You can read about some of my issues with hydrologic anlysisis in ArcGIS using high resolution data here: Printer-friendly version Log in to post comments.
Confirm the input Subbasin and River files, and click OK. Another main task that we want to do is to edit data related to structures. For example, we will use one bridge location in this exercise geohsm downstream of the junction with tributary as shown below bridge location is shown in red:.
For example, we will use one bridge location in this exercise just downstream of the junction with tributary as shown below bridge location is shown in red: Next Zoom-in to downstream section of the Cedar creek to define the watershed outlet as shown below:.
Then select the Minimize Area Change tab at the bottom, and enter for the number of points to trim cross-sections down to.
