What's new in GMS 10.2
The following is a list of the more significant changes and new features available in GMS 10.2.
Keep your license current by paying annual maintenance to continue receiving all available updates, releases, and technical support. New licenses include maintenance for 1 full year.
PEST for MODFLOW-USG
GMS now supports parameter estimation for MODFLOW-USG with PEST and Parallel PEST for single and multi-core processing.
A new PEST for MODFLOW-USG tutorial is now available.
Clip Display Option
Import 2D & 3D UGrid Points
Using the Import Wizard, you can now import 2D and 3D UGrid points which can also be filtered.
Delete UGrid Points
Single or multiple UGrid points may be selected and deleted as needed.
Delete UGrid Cells
Single or multiple UGrid cells may be selected and deleted as needed.
Constraints (previously "UGrid Structure") allow you to determine the type of cells and editing operations that are allowed and how they are performed on the UGrid.
Lock/Unlock for Editing
Prevent accidentally editing a UGrid such as dragging a selected point by locking or unlocking a UGrid. By default, UGrids are locked.
Adjust the sampling level resulting in smoother, antialiased graphics.
See an example of graphics smoothing
Swap Edge Tool
With the swap edges tool, selecting the common edge of two adjacent triangles will cause the edge to be swapped as long as the quadrilateral shape formed by the two triangles is not concave.
Split / Merge Tool
With the Split / Merge tool selected, selecting the triangle edge will cause the two triangular elements adjacent to the edge to be merged into a quadrilateral element provided that the quadrilateral shape formed by the two triangles is not concave. The tool can also be used to undo a merge or to "unmerge" a quadrilateral element.
CONTINUE in NWT Solver
Allows the MODFLOW-NWT model to continue even if the model fails to converge.
Export to Shapefile
Export UGrids to a polygon or point shapefile (*.shp) in the Project Explorer by right-clicking on the UGrid item.
Triangulation of Points
UGrid points can be triangulated to form a Delaunay triangulated irregular network, or TIN.
New Projections Tutorial
A new projections tutorial is now available.
Points Not Displayed
If contours are on, the point symbols are colored according to the contour options
Graphics Library Selection
Launch GMS using software graphics or system graphics.
Selection Echo Commmand
New windows menu option to open the Selection Echo window.
Convert to CAD with UGrid
UGrid data can now be converted to a CAD file.
External Plot Window
Plot windows are now outside of the GMS main window.
Double-click opens Properties of various Project Explorer items.
Properties menu commands are now at the bottom of all context menus for consistency.
Improved Wizard Font
Improved appearance of fonts used in the Text Import Wizard.
Improved color filled contours in the legend.
