The Virtual dataset groups for mesh layer and In-memory mesh datasets with persistence improvements greatly improves the workflows when using the Mesh Calculator in QGIS. Users can store the intermediate results into virtual layers that are recalculated on the fly (similarly to QGIS expressions for vector layers). The layers can be later persisted to any supported MDAL formats with write capabilities.
Multi identify tool for mesh feature allows to browse the temporal mesh data in more intuitive way and includes the extra information about the Mesh datasets loaded.
These features were sponsored by Artelia Group.
MDAL 0.8.0 supports loading of the external drivers. A first driver, available on Windows QGIS 3.18 only, is popular DFSU format by DHI, which is used to store MIKE 21 output results.
