  1. Hi Chris,

    Thanks for sharing and sorry for asking a question that is irrelvent to the post.

    I want a raster file with extracted maximum flood depths of each cell of my 2D area using RAS mapper. I know I can do this in "Edit map parameter". But the problem is that I want to ignore the first few timesteps when extracting the maximum depths. Is there any direct way of doing this? I think I can do this by extracting RAS tiles for the selected time steps as a .db file and extracting the maximum from this file. But my knowledge in working with .db file is limited. I would appreciate if you suggest an alternative way.


    1. You might consider using a hot start /restart file to achieve this.

  2. Is the web page working ? I Clicked the link, but it doesn't load. Any advice ?

    1. Works for me. If the link doesn’t work for you, try going directly to the HEC website.
