Contents Notes
"Hydraulic Modeling and GIS is a best practices guide for developing a sustainable hydraulic model and maintenance strategy that makes optimal use of your GIS. This book addresses GIS-centered concepts and applications that will help you understand and improve hydraulic model structures, advanced spatial analysis, network connectivity and topology, hydraulic model development and maintenance strategies, and GIS database design. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS is a practical handbook for GIS managers, engineers, and decision makers in the water and wastewater utility industry"-- "GIS and hydraulic modeling are complementary technologies. By integrating them with each other, water utility companies can reap substantial time and cost savings. A well-designed integration of the two systems provides ready access to mission-critical data. As a result, risk-of-failure analysis, repair and replacement, capacity assessment, capital improvement planning, and numerous other water utility applications run more efficiently and more effectively. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS identifies the challenges that must be navigated and offers best practices for achieving an integration that will be sustainable over the long term. Lori Armstrong is the Global Water-Wastewater Industry Manager at Esri. She has collaborated with the American Water Works Association, the Water Environment Federation, and the International Water Association. She holds a degree in economics from the University of California, Davis"--
