HEC Models

 

HEC-HMS hydrologic modeling software for converting precipitation into streamflow http://www.hec.usace.army.mil/software/hec-hms/

 

HEC-GeoHMS GIS software for setting up HEC-HMS (This is in old ArcView 3). http://www.hec.usace.army.mil/software/hec-geohms/documentation/HEC-GeoHMS11.pdf

 

A new version of HEC-GeoHMS for ArcGIS versions 8 and 9 (including 9.2) is available: A new version is available on the ESRI ftp site at ftp://ftp.esri.com/HECGeoHMS/ In the Internet Explorer Browser, use File/Login as where login is RiverHydraulics password is river.1114
