Conversion from GWV to GMS

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, im currently using GMS 3.1, and need to convert some models done in groundwater vistas 4 to this. Ive tried converting the data in GWV to shapefiles and the importing it into GMS, but i always end up with a mess or the program says format is not supported. Has nayone done this in the past and can tell me how to convert the grid and the different data types?

THank you

It's been a long time since I used v3.1, but does it actually support shapefiles? I feel like that came along in a later version.

I'm assuming that you are trying to transfer MODFLOW files. Can you export the files in a standard format (say MODFLOW-88 or -96)? If so, you should be able to pull them into v3.1 by first setting up a new simulation and then pulling in the basic file....bcf file....etc (I seem to recall that v3.1 imported the files individually).
