Expected Skills
Concept |
Reference in “Arc
Hydro” |
1. Arc Hydro is designed within the ArcGIS geodatabase using ArcObjects as its basic features |
Chapter 2, pp. 20-24 |
2. All HydroFeatures have a unique HydroID and HydroCode |
Chapter 2, pp. 25-26 |
3. Arc Hydro framework data model links core water features using geometric and relational connections |
Chapter 2, pp. 27-29 |
4. More extensive development can be added |
Chapter 2, pp. 30- 31 |
5. HydroNetwork is a geometric network of HydroEdges and HydroJunctions |
Chapter 3, pp. 35-39 |
6. Watersheds, Waterbodies and MonitoringPoints are connected to HydroJunctions using HydroID relationships |
Chapter 3, pp. 39-41 |
7. Upstream and downstream tracing can be done using the HydroNetwork or using NextDownID connectivity |
Chapter 3, pp. 41-43 |
8. River addressing can be performed using linear referencing to create events on the HydroNetwork |
Chapter 3, pp. 44-47 |
9. Terrain analysis can be used to trace the path of water movement over the landscape |
Chapter 4, pp. 56-59 |
10. Catchments and watersheds can be derived from the DEM in a formalized way |
Chapter 4, pp. 60-62 |
11. Watershed and terrain information is available at a variety of spatial scales |
Chapter 4, pp. 63-67 |
12. Catchments and stream networks are derived from the DEM using the 8-direction pour point model |
Chapter 4, pp. 68-75 |
13. Watersheds can be delineated from a set of points on the stream network |
Chapter 4, pp. 76-81 |
14. Watersheds can be used for hydrologic analysis |
Chapter 4, pp. 82-84 |
15. Hydrography is the “blue lines” on maps and is represented in the National Hydrography Dataset |
Chapter 6, pp. 118-122 |
16. Water resources observational data can be stored as time series in Arc Hydro |
Chapter 7, pp. 142-146 |
17. An Arc Hydro time series has a data value indexed by its spatial feature, type of data, and time of measurement |
Chapter 7, pp. 147-154 |
18. The Arc Hydro framework schema can be extended to relate MonitoringPoints to TimeSeries |
Chapter 7, pp. 154-160 |
