You’ll have different elements or assets displayed such as pipes, junctions, hydrants, valves, pumps, sensors, tanks, or supply sources.
As you can see, we represent the network assets with icons: some indicate the element type and also their status.
Here is a guide so you don’t get lost!
|Assets with deviations highlighted in the map||Green: low error deviation|
|Orange: medium error deviation|
|Red: high error deviation|
|Check valve||Used to represent check valves in the map|
|Customer point||Used in the Network elements panel to represent points where there are water meters/water consumption.|
|Customer point||Used to represent points in the map where there are water meters/water consumption.|
|Demand spike||Used to display or hide the Demand Spike panel|
|Deviation||Used to show the model deviation|
|Discoloration risk, turbidity||Used when performing a demand spike/flushing scenario to alert of discoloration risk|
|Flow||Used to display or hide the flow panel|
|Flushing||Used to perform a flushing scenario|
|Highlighted asset||Used to highlight the assets in the map you are applying changes to (e.g.: if you close a valve, a blue ring will appear)|
|Hydrant||Used to represent junctions specified as hydrants in the map|
|Hydrant with issues||Used to highlight hydrants with issues when there are threshold configured and warnings active|
|Inlet (asset)||Used to represent an asset that allows water to flow into and out of the network (e.g. inlet/outlet pipes) or controls the rate at which water flows along and out of it (e.g. inlet/outlet valves)|
|Junction||Used to represent junctions in the map|
|Junction with issues||Used to highlight junctions with issues when there are threshold configured and warnings active|
|Lateral (pipe)||Used to represent lateral pipes in the map (specified as that in the model imported to Qatium)|
|Locked, closed||Used to display the pipes that are set to "closed" status. This is very common in networks that haven´t got valve assets, where the pipes are used instead to define closed boundaries.|
|Elements search||Used to quickly locate assets in the map|
|Network layers||Used to open Network layers panel|
|Network levels||Used to display or hide the Network levels panel (associated with pipes in Qatium)|
|Network versions||Used to group different versions of the network (My network, My scenario), so you can assess the changes when performing scenarios.|
|Optimal velocities||Used for let you know if the pipe's velocity is considered optimal for flushing.|
|Pipe||Used to represent pipes in the network/map|
|Pipe (unsupplied)||Used to highlight unsupplied pipes in the map|
|Pipe (with changes)||Used to represent changes in the pipes while performing scenarios|
|Pipe with issues||Used to highlight pipes with issues when there are thresholds configured and warnings active|
|Pressure hexagons||Used to represent different pressure ranges in the map and the network, from the lower (purple) to the higher ones (yellow). Each one shows the average value for the junction's clustering (the farther away the zoom is, the more junctions a hexagon will cluster).|
|Pressure panel||Used to display or hide the pressure panel|
|Pressure range||Used inside the pressure panel to filter pressure map visualization by pressure range. It corresponds with the pressure hexagon color, from the lower (purple) to the higher ones (yellow).|
|Active pump||Used to represent pumps in the map|
|Regulating valves (PRV) - open||Used to represent Regulating valves in the map and the Network elements panel|
|Regulating valves (PRV) - closed|
|Regulating valves (PRV) - partially open|
|Sensor without readings||Used to represent sensors in the map|
|Sensor with readings|
|Shutdown||Used to perform a shutdown in the network and hide or display the panel|
|Supply source||Used to represent supply sources on the map|
|Synoptic (work mode)||Used to work with a high-level representation of the network|
|Tank||Used to represent tanks on the map|
|Tank with issues||Used to highlight tanks with issues when there are thresholds configured and warnings active|
|Tank volume panel||Used to display or hide the tank volume panel|
|Toggle ON||Used to activate/deactivate some panel's view (pressures, flows), or change the asset status|
|Shut-off valve (closed)||Used to represent shut-off valves on the map|
|Shut-off valve (open)|
|Shut-off valve (partially open)|
|Warning / Issues||Used to alert about problems in the network|
|Work modes||Used to switch between different work modes inside the platform|
|Zone||Used to represent different areas in the network|
The first elements that you’ll see are supply sources and arterial pipes. But as you zoom in, tanks, distribution pipes, pumps, valves, junctions, and hydrants will display. When clicking or hovering on the icons in the map, you will see the information for that asset.
You can also customize your view with the left bottom corner buttons:
- Network layers: see, organize, and recategorize the data in your model
- Network level: display Arterial and/or Distribution levels
- Network elements: hide or display assets or other objects as desired to have a clear vision of your network.
These panels will only show those elements present in the network. E.g.: if you don't have any tanks in your network, it won't be visible here.
To navigate quickly to your network assets, you can use the elements search:
- Just click on the magnifying glass button
- Type the element ID (E.g.: Nellybay)
- And you’ll be redirected automatically to the element highlighted on the map
You can use this to search for assets or any other network elements such as zones or junctions.
To have a wider view of your network, you can add background or zone layers containing any kind of geometry. This can be useful to establish demand zones, display neighborhoods, restricted areas, or building labels, for example. Once added, the new layer can be seen in the background of your network in blue.
