Curso Online de Modelización Hidráulica con HecRAS y ArcGIS 10 (GeoRAS)

This course will qualify students in HECRAS and ArcGIS extension HEC-GEORAS one of the most known and used software in hydraulic modelling.

Students will be trained in the basics of hydraulic modelling of prismatic channels and non-prismatic/natural riverbeds, as well as how to simulate different hydraulic constructions. The student will also learn how to use the ArcGIS – HEC-geoRAS extension, estimate different hydraulic parameters and define a simulation environment.

Enrolled students in this online course will have access to our virtual e-learning platform (which is available 24 hours), where they will find the content of the course, practical exercises, forum discussion and additional content. One of the advantages of this online platform, is that students can benefit of real time support and assistance offered by the instructor (2 hours per week), whom they can contact via direct messages, regarding course related issues, at any moment. They can also contact the instructor via email.

Why study Arcgis / GeoRAS and HEC-RAS?

The usage of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is rapidly growing, becoming an essential tool in a variety of business sectors like engineering, environment, geography, mining or geomarketing. Among GIS tools, ArcGIS is one of the most used GIS software worldwide, the most stable and versatile, comprised by a set of integrated applications, with a solid documentation over a wide range of tools being also supported by a large community.

HEC RAS is a simple and intuitive hydraulic modelling program that allow simulating the behaviour of a river/channel taking into account the morphology, slope and type of riverbed. In its calculations we can include also infrastructures like water intakes, bridge pillars and terrain. It allows us to estimate the water reach points, evaluating the flood hazards and learn about the flood risk areas etc. In addition, using this software, we can correctly determine the location of the new defense hydraulic infrastructures.

HEC-GeoRAS is an extension for ArcGIS that facilitate the connection between HECRAS and ArcGIS. Its capabilities include the extraction of ArcGIS data to obtain the riverbed morphology, type of terrain and so on. Once the simulation is done in HECRAS, we can import, visualize and handle the results directly in ArcGIS.

Do I need previous knowledge?

No, the training course starts from the very beginning. However, having prior knowledge of ArcGIS may be beneficial.

I don’t have ArcGIs 10. X, HEC-RAS and GeoRAS programs. What can I do?

Due to changes in the ESRI licensing policy, the trial version of 60 days for ArcGIS – ArcMap it is not available anymore. You can get access to the full capabilities of ArcGIS platform with the new ArcGIS for Personal Use option available at the following link.

HEC-RAS and GEO RAS are programs developed by the US Corps of Engineers and available for download on their website: HEC-RAS and GeoRAS.

Our online courses, are distributed via Moodle, the world’s most popular learning platform. It is a highly flexible Learning Management System that can be used to conduct and access courses, accomplish tasks of practical exercises, interact face-to-face to the teaching staff or benefit of support and resources at any time.

The online platform can be accessed 24 hours a day, in which the student will be able to ask for help at any given moment. The instructors will act as supervisors during all the training process, offering support for any possible difficulty encountered by the students along the course.

The course is structured in different modules, making it easy for the student to search for training material, download information, complete practical exercises and take assessments in order to verify their new gained abilities. The instructors will assist the students throughout all the course period, offering progressive help and information according to their evolution.
