How to add calibration data to river results

  • Dark
    Light

Calibration datasets are hugely important to reduce the uncertainty in model results. By comparing these known data values for specific events to results produced within Flood Modeller, a user can refine parameters to improve the accuracy of a model. 

Note
Flood Modeller also provides options to Create a river calibration dataset

To add calibration data to river results:

  1. Plot the 1D river result of interest. This can be a Time Series or a Long Section plot.
    Note
    You may find these guides helpful: How to plot a Long Section, How to plot a Time Series
  2. Click the Add/Remove results or calibration data button (5th button from left in chart toolbar), or Ctrl+U on your keyboard, to return to the Results Selection window. 
    Note
    You can also choose to add a calibration data file during the initial specification of the chart
  3. Click Add results/cal file(s) and browse to your calibration data - for Time Series plots this will be in a file with extension .cal, for a Long Section plot this will be in a file with extension .cus. Then click Plot to view both datasets within the same graph.
