How to import river network and cross section data from Arcmap?
« on: October 30, 2019, 07:36:49 am »
I'm trying to import river network and cross section data created in Arcmap into Mike 11 River Network, but could not find an option in Arcmap to export the dataset to ASCII format that Mike 11 was requiring. Could anyone please shed some lights?

Hi,

I haven't really worked with MIKE11 so i just know some sort of workaround. Do you have MIKE HYDRO? In this case you can add Shapefiles as Background Layers and afterwards open the menu Tools > Auto generate Cross Sections and choose "Survey points from shape file". Now you can select the shapefile you added as Background Layer in the step before. The cross section shapefile should be a point shapefile with a field that defines which survey point belongs to which cross section number.

The river network can be imported in MIKE HYDRO by File > Import from shape file and then choose "Branches".

Hope this helps!
