Creating a TIN Ground Model

A new TIN ground model can be created from a variety of data sources, including:

To create a TIN Ground Model from other data:

  1. On the Explorer Window, right-click a Model Group and choose New InfoWorks | Ground model TIN or New SWMM | Ground model TIN from the popup menu. This displays the Create New TIN Ground Model dialog.
  2. Enter a name for the new TIN ground model in the Name field.
  3. Choose the data from which the ground model will be generated (see below for more details). If conflicting points are found in the data, the data points will be prioritised so that points from data types further up this list will overwrite points from any data type below them on the list.
  4. Click Create TIN to start the creation process.
