Today was the first day of AU sign up in case you missed it. Looks like things are going much smoother than in the past, but I have to imaging much of that is due to the diminished number of folks who will be going to AU without much thought. In the past you could count on the fanboys to jam the switchboard on day one. This year? I’m thinking a lot of us are seriously looking at cost-benefit ratios, and debating how much political capital it’s worth to make the trip. Personally, I don’t think AU can be beat. Three days of hardcore training and ideas for less than most consultants charge for a day in your office.
Anyway, I’m teaching “The Floodplain Truth in Civil 3D,” and I need some new data. I’ve played with the same floodplain data set and HEC-RAS model for a number of years and want something new. If you have a HEC-RAS model you’d be willing to share with me, please drop me a comment below. Obviously, you and your firm will get the much deserved credit for being so generous. Thanks.
