How to Import Node Shapefiles into InfoSWMM

This blog describes how to use the GIS Gateway tool in InfoSWMM to import shapefiles and make InfoSWMM DB Tables and Arc Map Layers from the Shapefiles.   The import of shapefiles into either InfoSWMM or H2oMap SWMM is very flexible and uses the Command Exchange/GIS Gateway.  If you are starting from a new Arc Map then it is best to first add the shapefiles to Arc Map, initialize the Map to the Coordinate System of the Shapefiles and then import the Shapefiles using GIS Gateway to make an InfoSWMM Junction Layer.  The Steps to use the GIS Gateway for Nodes

Step 1.   Add the Manhole or Node Shapefiles and Inialize the Arc Map to the Coordinate System of the Shapfile using either the Personal or File GeoDatabase Options.
Step 2.   Use the GIS Gateway command and set up the Shapefile to load into the Junction Tables of InfoSWMM with the proper GIS Mapping Field.
Step 3.   You need to Map the Shapefile Data Fields to the InfoSWMM Junction   Data Fields.
Step 4.   Load the Shapefile using the Load Command.  The InfoSWMM DB Tables will be updated.
Step 5.   The Junction Layer of InfoSWMM has the loaded tables, you can see the data by using the Open Attribute Table Command.
Step 6.   The InfoSWMM DB Table for Junctions has the imported Junction data.
