HEC-RAS?

Post by eugarps » Mon Jan 08, 2007 10:58 am

Hello,

I'm new here so please forgive me if this has been asked and answered.

I'm a civil engineer in private practice and I'm hunting a package that will allow me to automate take-off of stream cross-sections for flood study work. Will MicroSurvey 2005 do stream cross sections or will I have to create an alignment for each section and treat the take-off like ever so many road centerlines?

Thanks,

Bill

CROSS SECTIONS

Gday Bill. Mscad 2005 is not the best package for cross sectioning. Even if you were to create alignments for each stream the output probably wouldn't suit your requirements.
You may need to spend more money to get suitable output for that type of work.
regards Richard
