How RGM HEC2000 works!
The RGM HEC2000 software is a Windows-based program that runs HEC-1 in the background and notifies the user of the status of successful (or unsuccessful) runs. It takes a fraction of a second to run most data files. The HEC-1 output data is extracted from the Tape21 output file and placed in convenient data spreadsheets that may be accessed for Windows copy / paste / print / save operations. The user has the option of viewing the DOS operations and results, as well.
The graphing program for hydrographs is designed to be flexible for all ranges of flows with ease of annotation to relieve the user of tedious labeling work. The picture is exported as a BMP graphics file for use in other applications, or it may be printed. The user may also edit the graph with a Windows graphical editor (MSPAINT), within RGM HEC2000, to label or annotate the graphs prior to export.
For Windows XP and Windows 2000, we use a version of HEC-1 that is compiled without the memory manager. Windows 95, 98 and ME use the memory manager version of HEC-1, and this is also supplied. The RGM HEC2000 software identifies the operating system and selects the proper version of HEC-1.
The program can work interactively by keeping various data windows open. The active input spreadsheet is designed to assist the user by identifying HEC-1 variables and their meaning. The user may control all aspects of the spreadsheet to ease the understanding of the card grouping, using colors, fonts, highlighting, etc. An audit routine that alerts the user of simple errors such as blank lines, etc. is also provided.
An in-depth review of all the features is available by accessing the Operation Manual on-line.
