AquaModel contains flow models and site data to be modeled.



EASy is the GIS program that simulates the sites, integrating high quality imagery and analytical tools.


Advanced Display Capabilities

AquaModel can display coastline data from several different sources including:

For this project we used World Vector Shoreline because it is relatively detailed (1:250000).  WVS is provided by NOAA National Geophysical Data Center.  The raw data however, consists of a series of disconnected line segments that are suitable only for an outline display of land masses.  A filled shoreline requires that line segments are first connected into ordered polygons.  EASy includes an interactive tool that provides this capability.

AquaModel now interfaces with and displays both measured and current meter data as well as 3-dimensional ocean current data.  For more information see the Coastal Flow Models page.
