RiverNET is the leading software that incorporates HEC-RAS and HEC-2 in AutoCAD. It includes a range of features and capabilities that automates HEC-RAS modeling tasks. Automatic cross section cutting, mapping of roughness values and bank station locations, floodplain mapping, floodway determination, bridges, culverts, and more. RiverNET is used by over 2,500 organizations worldwide.

Automated Terrain Data Processing

RiverNET takes complete advantage of digital terrain mapping automation:

  • Cross sections extracted from 3D digital contour maps, TINs,
    DTMs, DEMs (digital elevation models), LiDAR, and AutoCAD
    Land Desktop and Civil 3D surfaces
  • Manning's roughness values and stationing automatically
    mapped onto cross section
  • Overbank stations automatically mapped onto cross sections
  • Channel and overbank flow lengths measured and entered into
    cross sections
  • Ineffective flow area stations automatically mapped onto cross
    sections
  • Levee stations automatically mapped onto cross section
  • Importing of complete or partial HEC-RAS or HEC-2 input files,
    station-elevation, Northing-Easting, or XYZ coordinate data.

RiverNET's digital terrain automation capabilities allow the modeler to construct, analyze, and display the analysis results for a HEC-RAS (or HEC-2) model for several miles of river in just minutes. Several orders of magnitude increase in productivity is achievable using RiverNET.
