QGIS is used to load and view a range of event magnitudes and durations with the TUFLOW Viewer. For viewing of the 2D map results, see Module 1.

TUFLOW Project Re-Configuration

Re-configure the TUFLOW project to use and save empty files to the correct folder:

  1. Go to Plugins > TUFLOW > Editing > Configure / Create TUFLOW Project.
  2. Change the folder which contains TUFLOW to the Module_09 folder. This is the only change required, the model folder structure and template empty files are supplied from previous model.
    Note: The 'results' and 'check' folder get automatically created when the TUFLOW model is run.
  3. Click 'OK' and save the QGIS workspace by selecting Project > Save As.

  4. Set the QGIS workspace projection to EPSG:32760, see Set the Projection.


Inspect the results for all events:

  1. Open the TUFLOW Viewer.
  2. Load the results using the TCF. From File > Load Results, navigate to the Module_09\TUFLOW\runs folder and select the following file:
    • M09_5m_~e1~_~e2~_001.tcf
  3. When prompted, click 'Select All' and 'Ok'. The TUFLOW Viewer opens all six simulation runs using event management:
