Innovyze Releases Version 12.5 of Real-Time Flood Forecasting and Smart River Modeling Software

More Robust Export Options, and Enhanced Hydraulic and Hydrology Options Highlight the New Version

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, April 3, 2012

Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced the release of InfoWorks RS V12.5 and FloodWorks V12.5, its class-leading river and floodplain modeling, and real-time flood forecasting solutions. The latest release adds significant customer-requested functionality to improve the simulation and management of the world’s river systems.

InfoWorks RS combines a highly advanced 1D and 2D simulation engine, data management, geographical analysis and a relational database in one environment. This powerful combination results in a single tool that can import, clean up and store survey and time series data; build detailed and accurate models; analyze model results; and present outputs in engineering report-quality formats. InfoWorks RS provides full-solution modeling of open channels, culverts, floodplains, embankments and hydraulic structures. It also effectively simulates rainfall runoff using event-based and conceptual hydrological methods.

FloodWorks is a modular software package focused on real-time simulation and forecasting of future hydrologic and hydraulic conditions in river basins, stormwater and drainage systems, as well as coastal areas. Designed for operational use in the control room, FloodWorks links a variety of live data sources with a wide range of models to provide detailed and accurate forecasts of water levels, flood depths, flows, velocities, water quality parameters and sea state. FloodWorks helps managers and engineers carry out quick, accurate and detailed simulations of extreme weather events’ future effects. This provides necessary key data to effectively deploy emergency response services, minimizing the potential loss of life and costly damage to infrastructure.

Version 12.5 builds on the foundation of previous InfoWorks RS and FloodWorks releases. It especially addresses user feedback by incorporating valuable capabilities that support better graphical output, faster run times, new data formats including the Esri (Redlands, CA) ASCII grid (.ASC), and optimize network versioning and performance.

InfoWorks RS and Floodworks continue to be the industry’s leading river simulation and flood forecasting tools,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and COO of Innovyze. “By giving our customers an even more effective toolset, these new releases underscore our commitment to providing the world’s engineers with powerful, easy-to-use modeling and simulation software that helps them strengthen, protect, sustain and optimize their water resource infrastructure.”
