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.

Batch Watershed Delineation This function delineates the watershed upstream of each point in an input Batch Point feature class.

HMS Project This function copies all the project specific files that you have created. If the Center of Gravity is outside, it is snapped to the closest boundary. To create the river centerline in River feature thtorialstart editing, and choose Create New Feature as the Task, and River as the Target as shown below: Save the ArcMap document. What you have produced is a hydrologic skeleton that can now be used to delineate watersheds or sub-watersheds for any given geihms on delineated stream network.

Creating bank lines is similar to creating the channel centerline, but there are no specific guidelines with regard to line orientation and connectivity – they can be digitized either along the flow direction or against the flow direction, or may be continuous or broken. We will skip parameters associated with computing rainfall as these numbers should come from detailed analysis of the watershed.


Catchment Tutoriial Delineation This function creates a grid in which each cell carries a value grid code indicating to which catchment the cell belongs.

Browse to your working folder for Output Directory. Confirm the input Subbasin and River files, and click Gelhms. The output is the Catchment Grid layer. Confirm that the input of the Flow Direction Grid is Fdr. After creating cross-sections, the next step is to define bridges, culverts and other structure along the river. We will use this to locate the outlet of the watershed.

hdc This tells ArcHydro that the batch processing is done. With lnk grid active, select the contributing area tool, and click at any point along the stream to know the contributing area.

You can select features based on SoilCode and then use field calculator to assign numbers to polygons. Now remove the join and save the map document.

In this context a tutorjal, such as was delineated above is the entire area upstream of a point, while a subwatershed is the area that drains directly to a point of interest excluding any area that is part of another subwatershed.

Email Required, but never shown. So create a field named LandUse type: You can use this option to trace the flow path the path along which water will flow to the outlet for any point in the watershed.

The cells in Str goehms with a value of 1 are symbolized with black color to get a stream network as shown below:. For example, each river has a station number of zero at the downstream end, and is equal to the length of the river at the upstream end.


Step by Step: Flood Hazard Mapping

Next Zoom-in to downstream section of the Cedar creek to define the watershed outlet as shown below: The centroid elevation update may be needed when none of the basin centroid methods center of gravity or longest flow path provide satisfactory results, and it becomes necessary to edit the Centroid feature class and move the centroids to a more reasonable location manually.

All of the preprocessing must be completed before Watershed Processing functions can be used. 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: This function generates the aggregated upstream catchments from the Catchment feature class.

You can click on any reach geihms see its associated methods.

HydroID is a unique number for a given feature in a geodatabase. The River Lenght tool computes the length of river segments and stores them in RiverLen field. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. The value corresponds to the value carried by the stream segment that drains that area, defined in the stream segment link grid. When you come close to the junction, zoom-in, and you will notice that the tool will automatically try to snap or hug!
