InfoDrainage 2021.1 Help Documentation infodrainage2021v1

There are several forms that give you various perspectives of the Phases design. The following provides details on the specific view types. 

Plan - This is the main design surface of InfoDrainage. The locations of the various network and design elements are graphically represented on this window.

3D The locations, and dimensions of the various network and design elements are graphically represented on this window in three dimensions.

Tree View - The Tree View shows elements of the current Site grouped by Phases, which is in turn grouped by type. This allows the site to be quickly navigated, and provides direct access to the various options, instead of individually finding them on the ribbon menu.

Toolbox - The Toolbox shows the available functions and items that can be added to the Plan. A default set of items are supplied and additional items can be added through the Template Manager.

Properties - The Properties view shows the details of the currently selected item and allows values to be changed quickly without the need to visit a detailed data form.

Profile - The Profile form allows a given Flow Paths to be viewed in profile, and shows the relative lengths and levels of the various network elements. 

Display Settings - The Display Settings allow you to modify a view setting, adjust colours and other aspects to better view an aspect of the design.

Flow Paths - A Flow Path is a defined route through the site that can be used to filter the results or produce a Profile view.

Add Train / Add Network - A Flow Train is created by clicking the Add Train command on the Build Menu or the Toolbox. This allows you to place items automatically joined by connections on the plan.

Data Legend - The Data Legend shows the colours associated with values on the Surface and Deluge views.
