  • More efficient calculation of major rivers
  • More verbose error messages in shape_file creation
  • More verbose error messages in exporting arcs and objects in general

Export 1.11
Released in August, 2000

  • Added keyboard zoom shortcuts

Export 1.10
Released in April, 2000

  • Added ability to export basins and other vectors in ESRI shapefile format

Export 1.07
Released in December, 1999
Bug Fixes

  • Exported basin attributes in ARC/INFO format now include forecast groups
  • Corrected formatting issues concerning the expanded basin attributes

Export 1.06
Released in November, 1999

  • Expanded basin attributes supported for exported Arc/INFO format
  • Basin AML corrected for use with expanded attributes.
  • Note that apostrophes in text fields will be replaced with spaces in the exported file to maintain Arc/INFO compatibility

Export 1.05
Released in August, 1999

  • Export to WinQPF filters basins to 1000 vertices. (Used to be 3000)
Bug Fixes
  • Selecting from list dialog bug fixed.

Export 1.04
Released in June 1999

  • Failed export cleans up after itself
  • Default export vector precision set to 6 decimal places from 4
  • Calculating major rivers is much faster
  • Filtered export optimized (slightly faster)

Export 1.03
Released in June, 1999

  • Miscellaneous GUI tweaks involving fonts
  • Exporting into WHFS will use description field if available, otherwise will use COMS5 Handbook Id
  • Support for expanded basin attributes : Elevation zone boundaries, Mean/Minimum/Maximum slope, elevation, and aspect. Basin layers will need to be opened in IHABBS in order to take advantage of this. (Otherwise warning messages will appear when the user queries or exports a basin.)
  • Query basin now has an option for "Less" or "More", where the user may view either the traditional basin attributes or the expanded version which includes the fields described above.

Export 1.02
Released in January, 1999

  • Allows user to export "by attribute". In this fashion, vector layers can be exported by their name, and basins can be exported by name, COM5 id, CWA id, or Forecast group.
  • Now checks to see if exported files will overwrite other files
  • Improved some error messaging
Bug Fixes
  • Fixes a memory leak in exporting vectors
  • Fixed a bug when drawing less than 10 outlet points

Export 1.01
Released in January, 1999

  • Along with nohrsc, can execute outside of the directory containing the executable if this directory is included in the "path" and IHABBS is an exported pathname
  • Export can use a local configuration file or one located in the directory containing the executable. Of note is that the user must have write access to the directory holding the config file
Bug Fixes
  • Fixes some minor bugs

Export 1.0
Released in December, 1998

  • First non-beta release

  • Includes viewable basin outlet points
  • Background color can be modified
