The Intersected Edge of Water option on the Floodplain Map Results dialog box causes
an interpolated line representing the edge of water to be drawn on the surface. The
software interpolates the edge of water between cross sections by building a digital
terrain model (DTM) of the ground topography and of the computed water surface
elevation, and then intersecting these two surfaces with each other to determine a
precise edge of water.

The intersected edge of water may be drawn in one of several ways using the settings
in the Intersected Edge of Water Options dialog box. To display the dialog box, click
the Options button adjacent to the Intersected Edge of Water option on the Floodplain
Map Results dialog box.

The following options are available for drawing the intersected edge of water on the
surface.

Fill Type

An interpolated edge of water is generated by one of the following methods:

None

An interpolated edge of water is displayed using an unfilled boundary polyline.
This is the fastest method for generating the intersected edge of water.

Using the Program

2-59

Temporary File

The interpolated edge of water boundary polyline is filled with the polyline
color. This fill is temporary, and will be erased the next time the viewport is
redrawn. However, this area may be filled at any later time by entering
RMS_FPMTopoFill on the command line.

Hatch

The interpolated edge of water boundary polyline is filled with a hatch pattern,
which is not erased when the viewport is redrawn. Depending on the hatch
options selected, generating the hatch may take excessive amounts of time and
drawing space. If this turns out to be the case, press Esc to halt the hatch
generation.

Hatch Options

Displays the AutoCAD Hatch and Gradient dialog box, allowing selection of a
hatch pattern, scale, and rotation angle.

Intersection Step Size

Specifies the detail, in drawing units, at which all water surface intersection
results will be generated. For example, to calculate the edge of water every foot
(or meter), set this entry to 1.

Small step sizes (1 or less) will generate very complex contours, which can take
excessive amounts of time and drawing space. On most surfaces, a step size of
10 or 20 drawing units will provide sufficient detail without compromising
computing time or storage space.

Line Options

This section allows you to specify color, legend, and linetype options for the
simple water surface. These options apply only to the current profile.

Global Width

Specifies line thickness for the drawn edge of water polyline.
