  1. Thank you for your interest in using our software with the newest versions and advancements of technology. We hope to meet an ever growing technological world's demands as best as possible. Unfortunately, we do not get access to Windows releases or new editions of MODFLOW-USG (i.e. the new 1.3 version of USG was released December 1, 2015) any sooner than the next user. So, we have to adapt to its changes once it comes out. After running several tests with our software and Windows 10, the following has been resolved: 1. XMS must be installed by a user with administrative privileges. 2. XMS can be run by both standard and administrative users. 3. XMS versions compatible with Windows 10 are GMS 10.0+, SMS 12.1+, and WMS 10.0+ Please continue to comment if after following these steps you are still unable to use the software.
  2. Daniele, On our wiki page, GMS: Contour Options, it gives the option for using a log interval. "If the Log interval option is selected, all contour intervals will be positive. No contours are drawn in areas where the data values are zero or negative. Furthermore, a 'Starting value' must be entered. This value represents the minimum contour value." Thus, you have the option of assigning no contours to zero values, but it also affects your negative value contours, as well. So, I don't think this option will help you in this particular project. Another option is to manually edit and define the contour ramp. Using this option will not allow you to assign no color to zero values, but it will accommodate your other needs. To do this, click on Display then Display Options... in the top ribbon of GMS. Click on "Options" next to Contours. Under "Contour Method," select "Color Fill" and "Use Color Ramp." Specify your range (if needed). Click on "Color Ramp... ." Next, click "User defined" under "Palette Method," and "Edit Table..." to assign colors to the appropriate place. Please note: although the option for negative values may not appear when you click on edit table, the ramp is used to assign a color to a minimum value, a middle value, and a maximum value, and an appropriate contour ramp should display itself after clicking "OK." What I recommend is using the latter option and setting transparency to some value (maybe 50%?) that will allow you to have the ramp you desire with some of the effect of looking through the zero or white colored contours; or, use the workaround you mentioned in your initial query! Let us know if you have any further questions!
  3. knopfi22, I assume you are familiar with the tutorial on the Aquaveo webpage, Scattered Data Sets. In step 8, it highlights how to convert DXF files to scatter data. You may notice that when you import stmary.dxf (found in the zipped folder associated with the tutorial) you can right-click on "stmary.dxf" and select "Convert --> ". From here there are three options. CAD --> Map CAD --> 2D Scatter Triangles CAD --> 2D ScatterIn answer to your question, you can convert directly from CAD data to scatter points, but it will give you a different result then going from Cad --> Map --> Scatter. For this tutorial, the difference is converting straight to scatter data allows you to keep the z (elevation) values stored in the CAD data but you lose the breaklines, and converting the CAD data first to a map then to scatter allows you to maintain the contour breaklines but lose the elevation values. For more information, feel free to browse our wiki page which goes into more details.
