ArcGIS and SWMM Integration
GIS integration saves time and money in hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) modeling projects. To increase cost-effectiveness of H&H models, an innovative software called AGSWMM was developed. AGSWMM links Storm Water Management Model’s (SWMM) latest release SWMM5 with the latest release of the world's leading GIS software, ArcGIS™. The linkage was made possible because of the open data structures of the two programs. The chapter explains the urgency and importance of developing the new linkage. It also describes the steps for developing an interface between SWMM5 and ArcGIS. The methodology is demonstrated with various examples and a case study. Considering the fact that both ArcGIS and SWMM5 are new software products, this chapter should be valuable to many readers.
