Newly Available! Arc Hydro Groundwater 3.0 with Supporting Tutorials

Arc Hydro Groundwater version 3.0 is now available for download from Aquaveo Image

Version 3.0 offers new tools (as well as the regular improvements and bug fixes) such as

  • Create Unique ID Table and Assign HydroID GW—these tools create and assign unique identifiers in an Arc Hydro Groundwater geodatabase.
  • BoreholeLog to Points—use this tool with your BoreholeLog table to derive 3D points which are used to interpolate rasters and generate GeoSection or GeoVolume features.

Borehole data to GeoRasters

 

For a full
list of new features

available in Arc Hydro Groundwater Version 3.0 check the Arc Hydro Groundwater Wiki.

Additionally, new tutorials are available in the Arc Hydro Groundwater Learning Center, including:

 

We hope you find the new tools and tutorials useful.

Hydrography Event Management Tool for ArcGIS 10

  
National Hydrography Dataset

 

 

 

 

 

The Hydrography Event Management (HEM) Tool Version 2.4 for ArcGIS 10 is now available!

The HEM Tool provides full functionality for adding and editing events in the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD).

Events are informational data linked to the NHD using a linear
referencing system on NHDFlowlines.  The use of events allows vast
amounts of scientific information to be linked to the NHD.

The HEM tool handles all linear referencing mechanics to make working with events easy.  It works on point, line, and area events and allows events to be located interactively, imported, or calculated.

A number of state and federal partners have adopted HEM: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) incorporated HEM to meet Clean Water Act reporting requirements, the U.S. Forest Service incorporated HEM functionality into their National Resource Information System (NRIS) Aquatic Surveys application, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) incorporated HEM to support event creation for its Oregon/Washington Aquatic Resource Information Management System
and is evaluating its use for a national Riparian Database, and the HEM
Tool is used to georeference water quality data to the NHD, and this
information is then used for Section 303(d) water quality reports on impaired waters.

The
HEM effort is a unique collaboration between the BLM, U.S. Geological
Survey (USGS), and the EPA that results in ongoing tool development and
support to the expanding HEM user community.

The USGS provides basic to advanced HEM training with easy to follow exercises:

and additional user support in the Troubleshooting Guide.

OR you can request training and support on a specific HEM topic.

To find out more information visit USGS’s HEM site.

Arc Hydro Groundwater: GIS for Hydrogeology book now available from Esri Press


A new book, Arc Hydro Groundwater: GIS for Hydrogeology, is now available.

The book describes in much detail the Arc Hydro Groundwater
data model and provides an insight on the different components of the
data model and how they can be used to represent hydrogeologic data and
support visualization and analysis.

You can find more details (including a sneak peak) on the Esri Press website.

We hope you find the book useful and a good read.

Arc Hydro Tools Version 1.4 now available!

Arc Hydro Tools version 1.4 Final for ArcGIS 9.3/9.3.1 are now available for download.

Version 1.4 tools are upgraded to work with ArcGIS 9.3/9.3.1, and have added functionality to expand Arc Hydro’s  surface water modeling capabilities.

Ponded water depth, Kissimmee River

New additions include:

  • a GIS Data Exchange tool that allows the export, import and transformation of XML files,
  • Green Ampt and Time of Concentration tools to help calcuate infiltration for H & H Modeling,
  • Terrain Morphology tools to produce a more realistic model of your study area,
  • and geoprocessing tools to automate terrain preprocessing workflows.

Additions to the toolset were developed through work with users like the Southwest Florida Water Management District, to expand the functionality–so you get more bang for your buck–and to help users work more efficiently and with less headaches by using the terrain preprocessing geoprocessing tools.

We hope you find Version 1.4 useful, and welcome any and all feedback.  Arc Hydro Tools Version 2.0 for ArcGIS 10 is currently in the works, and should be released in the coming weeks.  To find earlier versions of Arc Hydro Tools, check the Arc Hydro Data Model site, or contact archydro@esri.com.

To download, find the latest version here:

Have you heard about Arc Hydro Groundwater?

Hydro is not only for surface water — the publicly available Arc Hydro Groundwater data model helps you archive, display, and analyze multidimensional hydrogeologic data, and better manage your groundwater and subsurface data within ArcGIS.

ToolsWell data are also available to help implement the data model. 

Aquaveo, a water resources engineering consulting firm, and an Esri business partner, architected the Arc Hydro Groundwater tools, which are broken into three toolsets: Groundwater Analyst, MODFLOW Analyst, and Subsurface AnalystMODFLOW

These tools enable you to plot time series and make flow direction maps, create, archive and visualize MODFLOW models, and create and visualize both 2D and 3D geologic models. 

The latest version of Arc Hydro Groundwater (as well as a free trial download) is found on Aquaveo’s-Arc Hydro Groundwater website, and tutorials for each toolset are provided for free in the Hydro Resource Center Education Gallery.

For more information on Arc Hydro Groundwater check out the Hydro Resource Center’s Groundwater page and Aquaveo’s Arc Hydro Groundwater Wiki

Key members of the Arc Hydro Groundwater team will be blogging often, so check back to find the latest developments with the Arc Hydro Groundwater data model and tools, and to hear valuable perspectives and implementations of Arc Hydro Groundwater.

The Hydro Resource Center is here!

Hydro is the newest User Community Resource Center, and can be found at http://resources.arcgis.com/.

The
Hydro Resource Center (RC) incorporates content from the Arc Hydro RC,
and information on Arc Hydro Groundwater and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst. 
Use the Hydro RC to learn ArcGIS implementation strategies for surface
water and groundwater projects, and best practices for publishing hydro
data, creating and publishing hydro web maps, web mapping applications,
and map templates. 

Take advantage of the resources found here, and share your experiences with others on the Hydro Blog, Hydro and Arc Hydro Forums, and user groups on ArcGIS.com.
