Introduction to 2D Modeling
Week 2 Detailed Activities
Bring Laptop to Class or Plan to Use a Lab Desktop with a Partner
in this weeks class we will do the first half of the Tuflow training together to work through the basic set up of a 2D model, which is also part of tutorial 1.
Evaluate your set up to either use your laptop for the class or plan to use one of Prof. Pasternack’s desktops in Vehmeyer 228 where we wil run the Tuflow training in weeks 2 and 3. For your laptop, you need to set up ArcGIS Pro to be read for the training, so you have to download and install that, as well as apply the license. All UCD students can use a license for ArcGIS- see set up instructions in the PDF about this topic in the HYD254Y Canvas Files menu.
Come to class prepared to work together on setting up a 2D model
