At Civil 3D Blogger Day last week, we announced that North American Civil 3D 2011 subscription customers will have a nice bonus to download- the 32 bit stand alone version of what was formerly known as StormNET. It’s called Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis Stand-Alone.
Next week, Karen and Arnab are going to Waltham for our AEC media events, so Arnab and I were working on his presentation to incorporate more about regional planning for stormwater management and wastewater collection (sanitary or foul water sewers depending on which side of the pond you live on!).
I spent some time on the phone today with Tim from Bolton and Menk in Mankato, Minnesota talking about the citywide stormwater plans they did for the City of Ramsey. You can watch a video about the City of Ramsey stormwater study here, and read the Bolton and Menk City of Ramsey Case Study here.
One of the things that Tim mentioned was how they exported the analysis results in shp format and create visual exhibits which are a lot more powerful than simply a big table.
I did something similar the other day with a sanitary network. I located the pipes that were under capacity and pushed the data out to a shapefile.
I’m pretty excited to see analysis output data in my data table. I immediately began thinking of all the map themes I could do… by velocity, by peak flow….
