Other new features

  • More memory, allowing you to load larger GIS datasets.
  • Flood Cloud offers enhanced model packaging functionality to enable a wider range of model configurations to be run in the cloud.
  • 1D enhancements:
    • Extension of links with TUFLOW HPC to enable inclusion of ESTRY components in linked 1D to TUFLOW HPC models.
    • Option to select multiple results when charting 1D model results and functionality to select multiple nodes in 1D.
    • Enhanced auto-georeferencing when loading 1D networks without an associated gxy file.
  • 2D enhancements:
    • Functionality to allow simulations to start without the user needing to specify a 1D-2D mass balance diagnostic filename.
    • Ability to write out the calculated maximum extent in an ASCII grid format.
    • Compatible with the latter of these changes; users can now select to write out check grids or automatically generate maximum flood extents in ASCII or GeoTIFF format.
