If you don’t have a hydraulic model yet, Q will help you create one from your GIS data.
You can import your GIS data in 2 simple steps as shown below:
- Select or Zip all your layers (Shapefiles or GeoJSONs)
- Drag & drop them directly into Qatium’s interface.
You can also upload your files by clicking on the Upload button or the Upload Network tile in the workspace.
Once your data is uploaded, Q will build a model from your GIS data in 4 easy steps, even if you have missing or inaccurate elements. Amazing, right?
But that’s not all: you can follow Q along through this model-building process. Just click Start and you’ll get useful insights into the checks and validations performed as well as more information about your model.
Your model is now ready.

Tip from Q:
You can repeat the steps above to create more networks (from your workspace).
While building your model, Q will do its best to interpret the data fed to Qatium, but might not get it right every time.
In this case, you can recategorize your layers as shown in the animation below:
E.g.: A pump layer might have been ignored. You can recategorize it as a pump layer and Qatium will recreate a model with this layer as a pump data input.
When updating a Network, make sure you name your GIS files exactly the same as the original ones - otherwise, they will be added as new layers.
By default, Qatium will create a 24h model starting at 00:00, with a 1h timestep (hydraulic, pattern and report)
