Geospatial Hydrologic Modeling Extension HEC-GeoHMS, User’s Manual. Public Domain That information is also provided in Appendix E of this manual for. This tutorial is designed to expose you to basic functions in HEC-GeoHMS ( ArcGIS version) to create input files for hydrologic modeling with HEC-HMS. Step 7: Terrain processing and HEC-GeoHMS model development The DEM, land use and soil data used in this tutorial are already clipped.

This is critical when we have polygons with more than one soil group for eg. Now remove the join and save the map document. The display should look similar to the figure shown below and be zoomed in sufficiently so you can see and click on individual grid cells. Create a new empty map. DEM reconditioning and filling sinks might not be required depending on the quality of the initial DEM.
Obstructions represent blocked flow areas areas with no water and no flow. The cross-section cutlines are 2D lines with no elevation information associated with them Polyline. Watershed Processing Arc Hydro toolbar also provides an extensive set of tools for delineating watersheds and subwatersheds. Using the Sketch tool highlighted abovestart digitizing the river centerline from upstream to downstream until you reach the intersection with Tule Creek tributary.
The river has different tributaries as shown below. My input-data is a DEM-file raster 1m.

All other cells in the Stream Grid contain no data. Tutoorial we will subtract the terrain dtmgrid from the water surface TIN, by first converting the water surface TIN to a grid.
Certain guidelines must be followed in creating cross-section cutlines: Upon successful completion of the process, the stream grid Str hhec added to the map.
Close the attribute table, and save the map document. Confirm cross-sections data, make sure all Import Data boxes are checked for crosssections, and click OK accept default values for matching tolerance, round places, etc.
Catchment Grid Delineation This function creates a grid in which each tutoriak carries a value grid code indicating to which catchment the cell belongs. You will notice that a new table BlockedPositions will be added to the map document, and its content are identical to IneffectivePositions table.

To create a geometry file, you need terrain elevation data. The next step is to prepare a look-up table that will have curve numbers for different combinations of land uses and soil groups.
Generally these many points are not required, and also when we extract cross-sections from a terrain using HEC-GeoRAS, we get a lot of redundant points. Click on the button notice the change in cursorand then click on one of the flow paths left or right, looking downstreamand name the flow path accordingly as shown below: Accept the default 20 map units for Rasterization Cell Size.
Close the snapping box, and then start digitizing the Tule Tributary from its upstream end towards the junction with the Baxter River.
USGS gaging sites If you have an existing shapefile or feature class with a set of points that you would like to use instead of interactively creating points, you can do so by using the following guidelines: Save your edits and stop editing. Both are Integer type you can check the field properties of BatchPoint. The cells in Str grid with a value of 1 are symbolized with black color to get a stream network as shown below: Ideally you will store this information in the LandUse feature class added to the map.
Browse to your working folder for Output Directory. Flow Accumulation Grid This function computes the flow accumulation grid that contains the accumulated number of cells upstream of a cell, for each cell in the input grid. The centroid elevation update may be needed when none of the basin centroid methods center of gravity or longest flow path provide satisfactory results, and it becomes necessary to edit the Centroid feature class and move the centroids to a more reasonable location manually.
We will only create an empty file that we can populate inside HMS. We can treat the main stem of the Baxter River as one river and the Tributary as the second river.
Cedar creek basin and enters St. We do not have any meteorologic data temperaturerainfall etc at this point. We gekhms almost done with GeoRAS pre-processing.
