Export Pipe Network Command

A pipe network is used to manage a collection of pipes and structures that are associated with each other to represent a pipe system. In GeoHECHMS, the user can use the Export Pipe Network command to export the pipe network data. This command exports a pipe and manhole network to a LandXML file format. Saving the pipe network data in a LandXML file allows the user to use it with other applications effortlessly.

The following list details the conversions that will occur when exporting a pipe network to a LandXML file.

Notes:

  • If a reach element does not have a circular shape, the reach will not be exported.
  • If a junction is not attached to a reach, the junction will not be exported.

  4. The software will then export the pipe and manhole network to a LandXML file.

Note that when this command is selected, the software first checks to see if there is any HEC-HMS data already loaded. If the software does not find any HEC-HMS model data in the current project, the following informational dialog box will be displayed.
