    Tool Failures

    Hi Simone, You should be able to run the Rasters To GeoVolumes tool in batch mode. I have tested this for a set of TINs and rasters and it seems to work fine. Also, am not encountering the crash you mentioned. If this is still an issue please let us know. Thanks, Gil
  2. Hi Simone, See below some suggestions: Regarding the closed volumes – we have also found that in some cases the features created are not closed which means you cannot calculate their volume. We are still trying to figure this out and are going back and forth with ESRI’s 3D team. We do not have a solution at this point, but I have a few suggestions you can try. The spacing and smoothness of the TIN is a factor – you can try to smooth/simplify the boundary polygon before creating the TIN. Create the TIN with a larger spacing - the denser the points (more detailed TIN) you have more chance to run into issues with the volume. Increase the minimum thickness parameter in the Rasters to GeoVolumes tool. Using a single TIN for multiple boundaries: Your approach of using a single TIN for multiple raster boundaries can work however there are some complications here: If you are using a single GeoRasters raster catalog to store the rasters then you need to specify for each run which of the rasters should be used. It won’t make sense to run the Rasters To GeoVolumes tool for all rasters at once as the tool looks for horizon ids and then fills between them. A workaround would be to use the Definition Query to filter the GeoRasters you want to use for each run. I tested this and it works nicely. Using the Definition query on the raster catalog you can specify each time the rasters you want to use and then run the Rasters To GeoVolumes tool only on those rasters. In this manner you are using a single TIN, but the rasters change every run. Should be fairly easy to write a small python script that modifies the Definition Query on the GeoRasters and then runs the Raster To GeoVolumes tool. This way you would be able to create a list of runs and execute them using a script. Creating multiple TINs: Another option is to create a TIN for each zone/lens you want to calculate. You can do the following: Batch the Tin to Polygon tool to create a set of TINs. Notice that you will need to have each boundary polygon in a separate feature class as the tool doesn’t work on multiple polygons in a single feature class. Batch the Rasters To GeoVolumes tool to work on the set of TINS created in the previous step. This doesn’t really solve your initial problem as you will still need to edit/filter the raster catalog each time you want to run the tool. Thus, probably the easiest way is to have the single tin and apply the Definition Query as mentioned above.
  3. Hi Fang, We identified the problem and fixed the tool. this fix will be available in the next release. Thanks for reporting this. Gil
  4. Hi, The MODFLOW Data Model (MDM) is documented here: http://www.archydrogw.com/ahgw/MODFLOW_Data_Model Gil
  5. Hi Fang, I was able to replicate this problem and we are looking into it. Will post something once we are able to identify a solution. Thanks, Gil
  6. Hi, I am not sure what the problem is. Are you able to run the Geoprocessing tools? In any case you should not be adding the toolbar from the DLL. Please contact Technial Support: http://www.aquaveo.com/technical-support. They will try to help you in more detail. Best regards, Gil
  7. Hi, You can try using the following to uninstall: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall. Gil
  8. A tutorial on handling Time Series related with Wells is available at the Arc Hydro Groundwater Learning Center: http://www.aquaveo.com/ahgw-learning. This tutorial describes a process of taking measurements, calculating statistics, and interpolating surfaces representing water levels (or water quality). A number of users have asked about automating this process. The following python script helps create a workflow to automate the production of water level and water quality maps. The workflow includes the following steps: Use the Create Time Series Statistics to calculate statistics for a specified time frame (e.g. average water level for a time period). Interpolate a raster from the summary statistics to represent a continuous surface over a defined area (e.g. county). Add the raster to a RasterSeries catalog with its time indexes (this helps you manage the raster sand animate them). To use the script just copy over the python file and toolbox file to the same directory. if you want to use the model available in the toolbox you will need to Edit the model and specify the input parameters to match your data. You can batch the model/script to create a set of rasters for different time periods. example script and toolbox.zip
  9. Hi, You need to install the tools by getting the installer from the Aquaveo website:http://www.aquaveo.com/downloads?tab=0#TabbedPanels Uninstall any of the Arc Hydro Groundwater tools you have on your machine. Run the instalation and then register the product. You cannot simply copy the DLLs from a different machine and try to load the tools. Hope this helps. Gil
  10. Hi, You cannot add the toolbar by just browsing to the DLL. The DLL has to be registered by running the installer. Once you run the installer you should be able to select Customize -> Toolbars -> Arc Hydro Groundwater Toolbar to add the toolbar to the map. Did you install the tools before trying to add the toolbar to the map? Best regards, Gil
  11. The Arc Hydro Groundwater toolbox is located in the System Toolbox. You can add the toolbox by Selecting the Add Toolbox option and browsing to the System Toolboxes. Once you loaded the toolbox into ArcMap or ArcScene you can right click anywhere in the Arc Toolbox window and select the option to Save Setting -> To Default. Now anytime you open ArcMap or ArcScene the Arc Hydro Groundwater toolbox will be available in your Arc Toolbox window.
  12. Hi Simon, We are aware of this issue but have not yet been able to resolve it. For now, I think the best approach is to export the model you created to a python script that with minor edits would enable you to batch the process. Attached is an example model you can use as your base. You will probably need some minor edits to make sure the paths in the model point to the right location on your computer. You can run the script in batch mode from the attached toolbox in Arc Map. Let us know if you have any questions. Best regards, Gil water level map script example.zip
  13. Hi, Yes, you will need to have ArcGIS 10 to do the volume calculation. In ArcGIS 10 there is a new toolset as part of 3D Analyst named 3D Features, in there you have different tools for 3D operations. The Add Z Information tool will allow you to calculate a volume on a multipatch. Gil
  14. You can set the grid on a data frame using the Set Layer As Map Grid tool available on the AHGW toolbar (). The tool lets you select the feature classes and the grid value attributes (). You can also set the grid in the data frame properties, but the tool automates this. Gil
  15. This is part of a separate post by Simon: "when i try to pull say one cross section into a new map im not able to use or set up a customized grid where the major and minor grid line shape files are able to create the grid, it automatically does this for me when i create the cross section in the fist instance. Is this likely to be an issue with my extensions or something."
