How to Save Node and Link Summary Tables in H2OMAP SWMM to Shapefiles


The export manager of H2OMAP SWMM is very flexible, you can export shape, MIF and CSV files but you have to do some copy and pasting to allow the program to export ALL of the node and pipe summary tables.  The export manager will export any node or pipe information in the DB hydraulic and information tables.  If you copy and paste, for example, the output pipe summary table to the Pipe information tables (Figure 1) then you can use the Export Manager (Figure 2) to save the shape file with tables (Figure 4) and view the shape file in Arc Map (Figure 4).  The TOC properties in Arc Map can be used to show the maximum d over D or maximum Q over Qfull values in Arc Map using this VBScript.


Function FindLabel ( [DOVEMAXD] )

  FindLabel = "" & FormatNumber([DOVEMAXD],2) & ""

End Function
