Model Construction:Running GSSHA from WMS

From Gsshawiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You can launch the GSSHA model directly from WMS by choosing the Run GSSHA command from the GSSHA menu. WMS uses the executable for GSSHA that is specified in the Models tab of the Preferences dialog. If WMS cannot find the GSSHA executable, then you will be prompted to locate the file separately using a file browser.

WMS passes the current project file to GSSHA, and you have the opportunity to let WMS write the project file prior to launching GSSHA. If you have already saved the project file and no changes have been made since saving, it is not necessary to write the project file again. If you have made modifications to your simulation since last saving the project file, you should turn on the toggle box to write the project file before running GSSHA so that all changes are saved to the project file.
