Why HY-12 with WMS?
WMS provides a custom interface to the HY-12 model offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, elevation, land use, and soil data. WMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations.
WMS now includes an interface to FHWA's HY-12 storm drain modeling program. This interface allows you to create a storm drain layout and assign rational method computations, curbs and gutters, access holes, pipes, channels, and other storm drain network features to the storm drain layout. Much of the data can be computed automatically using the interface, and other data values can be entered in the easy-to-use windows. The other storm drain modeling interfaces, including the SWMM and xp-swmm interfaces, have also been upgraded to make your model easier to build and maintain.
