InfoWater Goes Pro

InfoWater has been the industry leader for utilities, consultants, and other organizations in the US for nearly a decade. Innovyze understands that the water system is more than the hydraulic analysis, it's about the communities impacted by that water.

Integrating the power of Innovyze’s hydraulic modeling with Esri ArcGIS Pro and it’s cutting edge 64-bit spatial analysis and visualization tools allows users the ability to perform more advanced analysis, keep models updated faster, and understand system impacts without leaving the comfort of your data’s natural environment.

InfoWater Pro and Esri

InfoWater Pro takes what was great in InfoWater and optimizes it within the ArcGIS Pro platform.

  • InfoWater Pro is simply an extra ribbon in the ArcGIS Pro interface
  • The GIS Gateway has been improved to pull information directly from ArcGIS Online
  • 3D visualization allows for new ways to view common hydraulic data. The example on the right shows the pressure head at each junction in 3D.
  • InfoWater Pro also takes advantage of ArcGIS Pro's 64-bit interface allowing for faster map performance than ever before.
  • InfoWater Pro can be used with or without the Esri Water Distribution Utility Network Foundation.
  • Innovyze will continue to develop ways to further leverage the Utility Network in future upgrades.

Access a wide library of applications

Over 30 years of water modeling expertise have gone into InfoWater. In InfoWater Pro, that expertise gets reorganized.

InfoWater previously was divided into multiple tiers each with access to different tools. In InfoWater Pro, all those tools are neatly organized in one spot with access to all of them.

InfoWater Pro can connect you to various applications so you can handle anything your system throws at you

InfoWater Pro Continues to Push Hydraulic Modeling Limits

InfoWater has always had a variety of tools and features to address numerous applications from water quality evaluation to master planning to pipe break analysis. InfoWater Pro makes these tools faster and even more accessible.

Continuing to Grow and Lead

Innovyze continues to listen and aggressively add functionality to InfoWater Pro in order to save costs and improve workflows for our users around the world. Examples of additional improvements exclusive only to InfoWater Pro include:

  • System Schematic - This is a completely new way to view and navigate your network. Quickly jump between pressure zones and locate the key elements within each pressure zone to determine what facilities are affecting parameters such as total inflow/outflow and max/min heads.

  • Live Data Adapter - The Live Data Adapter allows users to link their SCADA information to their InfoWater Pro hydraulic model. This can allow users to easily compare and calibrate model results to real-time network results.

  • Pressure Dependent Demand - By optimizing calculations to account for pressure-dependent demands, hydraulic models can provide more realistic and accurate results when parts of the network are expectantly shut off. This allows for higher confidence and better decision-making from modeling results.
