As discussed, the next major step in the hydraulic system design is to start directly creating the system. We will be doing this using QEPANET, which actually is a built in function for QGIS that we can use directly in the same project that the current map is.
- Create a tutorial on how to download and install QEPANET into QGIS
- Start to take notes on how to utilize the plugin, quick guides, helpful tips, etc.
- Figure out if we need to create extra separate layers
- Figure out what layers we will need to utilize to start designing the distribution system
Some ideas: LIDAR data for elevation, GPS points for lat, long positions, external background map to make it look nice, watershed and boundary information?
