MapInfo can be used to view both the scalar datasets (such as depths, levels and velocity magnitudes). These can directly be outputted from TUFLOW using Grid output format. For the old page which steps through the process of using TUFLOW_to_GIS to convert these please see View Results in MapInfo (TUFLOW_to_GIS) The raster grids should have been written to the following directory: TUFLOWResultsM012Dgrids. If this folder does not contain a series of .asc grids, please check that: If the Grid Format command is not specified, TUFLOW will output to the default .flt format, which Vertical Mapper does not recognise. To change the styling of the visible layer, bring up the Vertical Mapper Grid Manager, this can be done by selecting the menu item Vertical Mapper >,>, Show Grid Manager. Select the M01_5m_002_d_g002.50_Max grid and select Colour option. This should bring up a data histogram and colouring utility. Here you can change the colouring options. TIP: Once you have a colour profile you are happy with this can be saved, so it can be applied to other grids. The value from the TUFLOW results can be inspected at any point by using the Vertical Mapper Grid Info utility. To control which grids information is displayed for, in the Grid Manager window, use the check box under the i? (first column). To create a long section of the water level results. The Vertical Mapper Cross-Section utility can be used. The icon for this is highlight in the image below. TIP: The Gradient… option can be used to change the colour profile. TIP: Use the Save As… and Load… options, to contour multiple grids to the same interval and styling. Once completed (this should only take a few seconds), a new table containing the contour lines will be created. This can be added to a map and labelled using either of the label buttons, highlighted in the image below. The button within the Layer Control (to the right of the table name) will label all lines, the button in the toolbar allows the user to select lines to be labelled. To change the label propoerties, right click on the table in the Layer Control and select layer properties, select Label Display to change the labelling options. In order to view the vectors, rather than the scalar grided datasets, it is necessary to use the TUFLOW to GIS utility. This utility can be downloaded from the TUFLOW website (TUFLOW Downloads). There is separate wiki page on how to use the TUFLOW_to_GIS utility. This page can be found here TUFLOW to GIS. A console window should appear and the batch file may process for a minute or so. When finished the output screen should look like screen image below: The vectors are MapInfo tables containing the arrows as polygon objects. These can simply be added to any map window, these will need to appear above the aerial photos and results grids to be visible. The info tool (green i) can be used to interrogate the velocity at each vector location, to determine the velocity magnitude. To view the results at different times, simply add and remove the grids and velocity results for the appropriate time. For example remove (or turn off the visibility) of M01_5m_002_d_g002.50____1.00 and M01_5m_002_V____1.00_v and add M01_5m_002_d_g002.50____2.00 and M01_5m_002_V____2.00_v to view the depth and velocity at output time 2 hours. In this page we have introduced TUFLOW_to_GIS for processing of TUFLOW results into MapInfo format. These results have been imported into MapInfo for viewing. We have also covered: Source.
