Dry Run Creek Urban Modeling

Posted Dec. 11, 2014, 5:58 p.m.

 The GeoTREE Center is working with the Black Hawk Soil and Water Conservation District on a project which will result in database development of urban land use in the Dry Run Creek watershed, modeled results of pollutant runoff in the watershed, estimated improvements due to Best Management Practices introduced in the watershed, and finally a web mapping application detailing the Dry Run Creek Watershed. The project will use the ArcSLAMM package developed by GeoTREE and the WinSLAMM urban modeling program. GeoTREE student employees working on the project include Jonathan Beavers, Lucie Ostlund, and Alex Newkirk.

ArcSLAMM

Posted Dec. 11, 2014, 5:58 p.m.

 The GeoTREE Center is collaborating with PV & Associates to complete development of a pacakage to couple ArcGIS Desktop software with WinSLAMM, a popular urban stormwater modeling application. The GeoTREE Center is completing development of ArcSLAMM tools and custom geodatabase which will be made available this spring. The basic ArcSLAMM package (free) will provide tools and databases to make the development of detailed source areas and ArcGIS creation of inputs for the WinSLAMM model and tools to visualize outputs from WinSLAMM in ArcGIS easier. The ArcSLAMM Plus package will provide capabilities for working with the standard land use module in WinSLAMM which will allow urban stormwater modeling in small to medium sized urban watersheds. ArcSLAMM Plus will be made available for a small charge at the PV & Associates website when finished (http://www.winslamm.com/).

Dubuque/Catfish Creek Watershed ArcSLAMM Workshop

Posted Aug. 18, 2014, 5:57 p.m.

 The GeoTREE Center provided a one day training on August 11 for the City of Dubuque Engineering and Dubuque Soil and Water Conservation personnel in the use of the ARCSLAMM-WinSLAMM coupled urban stormwater modeling system. The GeoTREE Center had created a comprehensive spatial database for the urban area of the Catfish Creek Watershed. The workshop demonstrated the use of these data for modeling urban stormwater runoff and pollution using the popular model WinSLAMM and the free ArcGIS toolbox ArcSLAMM. ArcSLAMM was developed by the GeoTREE Center as part of an Iowa Water Center funded project. Students Alex Newkirk and Jonathan Beavers were instrumental in database creation and workshop preparation.
