How an Inflow Time Series is Used in ICM compared to SWMM5 using H2OMap SWMM and InfoSWMM

How an Inflow Time Series is Used in ICM compared to SWMM5 using H2OMap SWMM and InfoSWMM.  The main points are illustrated by blue bullet points in Figure 1.  ICM and SWMM 5 both use time series but in SWMM 5 one time series can be applied to multiple nodes.

1. Inflow Time Series Name uses a CSV file
2. The CSV file has time rows, flows for the number of nodes with inflow and column headers with the names of the nodes,
3. InfoSWMM, H2OMap SWMM and SWMM 5 have a user defined time series at loading nodes in the Inflow Icon,
4. A time series is used as the source of flow and the time series can be the same for multiple nodes.
