TUFLOW is purely a hydrodynamic engine for 1D/2D flood modelling and as such does not feature a graphical user interface for building models or viewing results. A third-party GIS or similar environment is therefore required which can increase TUFLOW's cost of ownership by over 30% 1
QGIS is a Free and Open Source GIS which is compatible with TUFLOW's input and output files which can be used to develop and post-process models. Lutra Consulting are offering users already familiar with TUFLOW and GIS concepts a valuable insight into using this powerful yet user-friendly GIS for hydraulic modelling.
During the course, attendees will be introduced to our Crayfish plugin to visualise and export TUFLOW results to raster layers or animations.
Participants will acquire the following key skills:
1 Based on purchasing TUFLOW for £5,500, MapInfo Professional 9.0 for £1,756 and Vertical Mapper for £995.
