GeoHECRAS Saves Time
I have had a lot of experience working with HEC‑RAS and have recently started using GeoHECRAS.
I like how GeoHECRAS combines three or more steps into a single step. For example, it will automatically cut cross sections along an alignment, extract the cross section geometry, assign the bank stations, and determine the flow lengths all by running one command.
Also, I like that I only need to maintain a single file and that the software manages all of the other supporting files that are used for the project. With the Army Corps of Engineers HEC‑RAS I have to constantly keep track of the various project, plan, geometry, and flow files for each iteration of the analysis. Whereas, GeoHECRAS manages all of this data for me and allows me to easily focus on the actual engineering involved in the project. The software will combine various supporting data, like AutoCAD drawing files, terrain surfaces, survey files, orthophoto imagery, allowing me to build and view the HEC‑RAS model directly on a map view of the project site.
All of this means that GeoHECRAS will save me a lot of time in my HEC‑RAS engineering projects.
