A guide for incorporating AdH modeling data into ArcGIS® using a netCDF : a case study for the Sacramento River
Saltus, Christina L.; Davis, Austin V.; Threadgill, Tammy L.; Hammack, E. Allen.; Smith, David L.
Technical NotePurpose: Expanding technology and the growing number of modeling applications has increased the need for modeling output to be easily accessible and transferable to multiple applications in a common data format. It is beneficial, therefore, for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) research scientists to leverage application tools and information available in various software packages to improve data analysis and expand research options. The primary objective of this technical note is to provide a tutorial for the conversion, visualization, and application of Adaptive Hydraulics (AdH) modeling data in the network Common Data Format (netCDF) for use in ArcGIS®. This guide will demonstrate the suitability and use of netCDF as a standard for packaging modeling data for distribution to USACE districts and project stakeholders.
