EMS-I Watershed Modeling System (WMS) v8.0 crack

The Watershed Modeling System (WMS) is a comprehensive graphical modeling environment for all phases of watershed hydrology and hydraulics. WMS includes powerful tools to automate modeling processes such as automated basin delineation, geometric parameter calculations, GIS overlay computations (CN, rainfall depth, roughness coefficients, etc.), cross-section extraction from terrain data, and many more! With the release of WMS 8, the software now supports hydrologic modeling with HEC-1 (HEC-HMS), TR-20, TR-55, Rational Method, NFF, MODRAT, OC Rational, and HSPF. Hydraulic models supported include HEC-RAS, SMPDBK, and CE QUAL W2. 2D integrated hydrology (including channel hydraulics and groundwater interaction) can now be modeled with GSSHA. All of this in a GIS-based data processing framework will make the task of watershed modeling and mapping easier than ever before

The program’s modular design enables the user to select modules in custom combinations, allowing the user to choose only those hydrologic modeling capabilities that are required. Additional WMS modules can be purchased and added at any time. The software will dynamically link to these subsequent modules at run time—automatically adding additional modeling capability to the software.

Automated Watershed Delineation

Using digital terrain data, WMS can automatically delineate a watershed and sub-basins. As part of the delineation process, basin data such as area, slope, mean elevation, maximum flow distance, and many other commonly-used hydrologic parameters are automatically computed. A new Delineation Wizard has been added to WMS to guide first-time or novice users of the software through the delineation process. However, many advanced features and options are included in WMS:

Use DEMs (grids) or TINs for delineation. You can easily manipulate the elevation data in either type of dataset.
Add any number of interior outlet points and let WMS subdivide the watershed automatically.
Manipulate stream networks to represent man-made features or proposed changes in the watershed.
Override derived basin boundaries to match your knowledge of the watershed.
As part of the delineation process, WMS finds all flow paths on the entire terrain model. This allows you to inspect flow patterns anywhere inside of outside your watershed. Further, the longest flow path in each sub-basin is stored for use with the Time of Concentration Calculator. No other system available will match the accuracy and flexibility of the delineation functions in WMS!

GIS Tools

WMS will allow you to take advantage of all types of GIS data available for hydrologic and hydraulic modeling. The GIS module of WMS 8 includes a complete set of tools for importing, creating, and manipulating GIS vector and raster data. ArcGIS/ArcView is not a required component of the WMS software! You will find that WMS can work with your GIS data effectively with or without ArcGIS. A few of the powerful tools in WMS include:

Direct linkage with ESRI’s ArcGIS - this lets you use the powerful data catalog tools of ArcGIS in conjunction with WMS.
Terrain data can be created, merged, and manipulated using grids, TINs, or contour lines.
Data layers such as land use and soil type can be clipped to match your watershed.
Attribute tables can be joined and queried.
Images (TIFF, JPEG) can be geo-referenced, joined, and clipped.
Attributes from data layers can be assigned to your model using GIS overlay operations.
New “data tree” interface allows you to turn on/off, change display, change coordinate systems, and review contents of each data layer quickly and easily.
