Crayfish 2.3: New features

JULY 15, 2016 crayfish hydraulics news plugins qgis

Crayfish 2.3 is out with FLO-2D format support and automatic export of contours

Support for new formats

We added support for FLO-2D result files.

FLO-2D format in Crayfish

Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF) outputs are now fully supported in Crayfish.

Export contours

Users can now directly generate vector contours from a Crayfish layer. The export-to-contour feature allows you to select type of contour (e.g. line or area contour) and contour intervals. A very handy option is that the current colour ramp can be also used for your contour intervals.

Exporting contours in Crayfish

Processing toolbox Crayfish provider

We have incorporated many algorithms from Crayfish to processing toolbox (Export grid, Export mesh elements, …). To activate the Crayfish module, from the main menu, select Processing > Options and in the new window, under Providers > Crayfish algorithms select the option for Activate.

Exporting contours in Crayfish

With the processing toolbox, user can create batch geo-processing algorithms to automate their work. For example, you can create a batch process using this module, to export several Crayfish grids to rasters.

Export to animation using the Processing Toolbox is not supported yet.

Future developments

We’d like to add support for mesh generation and also mesh calculator. If these are something of you or your organisation interest and would like to contribute financially, feel free to get in touch.

For any problems or feedback, please consider to file a ticket here.
