AHGW Learning Center
Updated and added new tutorials on the AHGW Learning Center to reflect some of the new tools in this version.
Modify AHGW Geodatabase
Added a new geoprocessing tool for modifying existing geodatabases for use with AHGW. It creates empty tables and feature classes that conform to the Arc Hydro Groundwater data model. This includes talbes and feature classes for Groundwater Analyst, MODFLOW Analyst, and Subsurface Analyst. This tool works in a similar fashion to the Create Blank AHGW Geodatabase tool, but would simply be used to add various missing portions of Arc Hydro Groundwater to your existing geodatabase.
Text Import Wizard
Added a check to ensure that both X and Y fields are mapped when importing data to feature layers.
Create Blank AHGW Geodatabase
Added XS2D_Catalog to the Subsurface tables.
MODFLOW Array from Polygons
Improved tool execution time.
Import MODFLOW tools
Added warnings if there are problems reading the DELRC table for "R" or "C" attributes.
IBOUND to Polygon
Improved tool performance for File Geodatabases.
Add Borehole Image Wizard
This is a new wizard for adding borehole images to cross sections. After selecting a particular Well, you run the wizard to register the borehole image. When finished, you can view the registered image in the cross section data frame.
For example, the wizard could be used to register an image of a geophysical plot for a particular well. With the image in place on cross section data frame, it could be used to help create XS2D Panel features or used in reports.
Create XS2D Point Feature Class tool
A new geoprocessing tool was added for creating XS2D Point feature classes, which are associated with SectionLine features. Information about the new feature classes created by this tool are stored in the XS2D_Catalog table. The XS2D Point feature classes are simply generic placeholders for points of interest for your cross sections. For example, they could used to store the location where a road or river intersects a cross section.
Transform Lines to XS2D Points tool
A new geoprocessing tool was added for intersecting a cross section represented by a SectionLine with a line (road, fault, river, etc.), and adds it to the cross section as a point. The XS2D elevation value of the new points can come either from the intersecting line if it's in 3D, or alternatively from a background raster. This tool is used after first running the Create XS2D Point Feature Class tool.
Transform Points to XS2D Points
A new geoprocessing tool, similar to the one above, for taking points adjacent to a SectionLine, and adding them to an XS2D cross section as XS2D Point features. The XS2D elevation value of the new points can come either from the original points if they're in 3D, or alternatively from a background raster. This tool is used after first running the Create XS2D Point Feature Class tool.
Transform XS2D Lines to Points
A new geoprocessing tool was added for transforming XS2D Line features found in an cross section into points along the associated SectionLine in 3D. The vertices of the original XS2D Line features are projected over to XYZ coordinates into a new PointZ feature class. Optionally, more points along the XS2D Line features can be sampled at a specified distance. All the new points are created directly along the SectionLine feature associated with the cross section. The XS2D Line features are generic and could specify things such as a saltwater interface, or even the top and bottom boundaries of hydrogeologic units. If the XS2D Lines represent the boundaries of hydrogeologic units, the resulting XYZ points could be used in the interpolation of raster surfaces, GeoRasters, and ultimately GeoVolume features.
BoreholeLog Table to Points
Fixed a problem with Z aware input when copying well attributes.
Create Geophysical Plot wizard
Fixed problem with Append option if the output feature class does not exist.
Transform Raster to XS2D Line
No line segments are created where NODATA values are read. Improved handling of NODATA values in rasters.
Fixed problem using SDE for boreline segments with zero length.
Fixed ID's for GeoSection to Points and Scale XS2D Section Features.
