Software

  • eCoastal Tools and Software
      These eCoastal ArcMap toolbars support the eCoastal desktop applications. Collectively these individual toolbars form the eCoastal Toolbox. eCoastal only toolbars include: Survey Tools, Profile Loader, and SBAS-A.

  • Ecosystem Restoration Model Library
      The Ecosystem Restoration Planning Center of Expertise Model Library is intended to serve planners and practitioners of ecosystem restoration by consolidating and providing access to information about ecosystem restoration planning models and software.

  • Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) Tools Network
      The EBM Tools Network by NatureServe provides tools, training, and webinars for: climate change vulnerability assessment and adaptation planning, ecosystem-based coastal and marine spatial planning, and integrated land-sea planning to minimize the impacts of land use on coastal and marine environments. The Corps has a subscription for more advanced queries and information. Please contact Paul Wagner, IWR, for more information.

  • Hydrologic Engineering Center: Software
      This collection of software includes models such as HEC-RAS, GeoRAS, HMS, GeoHMS, SSP, RPT, ResSim, EFM, EFM Plotter, FDA, DSS, CWMS, LifeSim and more.

  • IWR-APT (Assistance for Planning Teams)  Corps Castle
      IWR-APT is an online software tool to help project delivery teams (PDTs) create, edit, analyze and manage their study materials. Modules currently within APT include: Risk Register, Decision Management Plan (DMP), Decision Log, Study Issue Checklist, and SMART Planning Deliverable Workflow.

  • IWR Software (including some HEC Software)
      The Corps Institute for Water Resources (IWR) has developed software for several planning functions and hydrologic engineering tasks, including the Container Model Suite of Tools and HarborSym; Civil Works Regional Economic System (RECONS) Program; and IWR Planning Suite.

  • Planning Model Documentation and Resources

  • Recent US Climate Change and Hydrology Literature Applicable to US Army Corps of Engineers Missions
      Concise and broadly-accessible summaries of the current science (2015) with specific attention to USACE missions and operations. Each of the 21 regional reports summarizes observed and projected climate and hydrological patterns cited in reputable peer-reviewed literature and authoritative national and regional reports, and characterizes climate threats to USACE business lines. They also provide context and linkage to other agency resources for climate resilience planning, such as sea level change calculation and coastal risk reduction resources, downscaled climate data for subregions, and watershed vulnerability assessment tools.

  • Regional Economic System (RECONS)
      The Civil Works Regional Economic System (RECONS) Program is a regional economic impact modeling tool that was developed to provide accurate and defendable estimates of regional economic impacts associated with USACE spending. It can be utilized to track progress and justify continued operation, maintenance and construction work performed by the Corps. RECONS is the only USACE certified Regional Economic Development (RED) model for agency wide use.

  • USACE Climate Hydrology Assessment Tool
      The qualitative analysis required by ECB 2016-25 includes consideration of both past (observed) changes as well as potential future (projected) changes to relevant hydrologic inputs. A first-order statistical analysis of the potential impacts to particular hydrologic elements of the study can be included as supplemental input to this qualitative assessment, but is not required. However, this analysis can be very useful in considering future without project conditions (FWOP) and the potential direction of climate change. This web-accessible tool allows USACE staff to easily access both existing and projected climate. This allows districts across the country to develop repeatable analytical results using consistent information. In doing so, we reduce potential error and speed the development of information so that it can be used earlier in the decision-making process, ideally in the development of risk registers.

  • USACE Climate Preparedness and Resilience Applications Portal
      USACE is developing a suite of web accessible tools to support repeatable analytical results for climate preparedness and resilience planning and engineering design, including a sea level change calculator and tools supporting impacts analysis and design for climate-impacted hydrology.

  • USACE Nonstationarity Detection Tool
      This Nonstationarity Detection Tool was developed in conjunction with draft USACE Engineering Technical Letter (ETL) 1100-2-3, Guidance for Detection of Nonstationarities in Annual Maximum Discharges, to detect nonstationarities in maximum annual flow time series. Per this draft ETL 1100-2-3, engineers will be required to assess the stationarity of all streamflow records analyzed in support of hydrologic analysis carried out for USACE planning and engineering decision-making purposes. The Nonstationarity Detection Tool enables the user to apply a series of statistical tests to assess the stationarity of annual peak streamflow data series at any United States Geological Survey (USGS) annual instantaneous peak streamflow gage site with more than 30 years of flow record through Water Year 2014. The tool is intended to aid practitioners in identifying continuous periods of statistically homogenous (stationary) annual peak streamflow datasets that can be adopted for further hydrologic analysis. The web tool detects nonstationarities in the historical record to help the user segment the record into flow datasets whose statistical properties can be considered stationary.
