We have been asked by several users about QGIS 3.4 and TUFLOW outputs. In QGIS 3.4, we have introduced MDAL so you can read TUFLOW results directly in QGIS without a plugin. For more info see here: https://www.lutraconsulting.co.uk/blog/2018/10/18/mdal/ Crayfish is now much more simplified and is used to generate animations and plots. There will be some more functionalities (grid calculator, conversion of mesh to raster, etc later). To add TUFLOW results: 1- Add 2dm as a Mesh layer 2- Right-click and open Properties 3- From Source tab > Assign Extra Dataset to Mesh 4- Point to your DAT or XMDF files. https://youtu.be/yW-s-umptQQ (not the best quality, but gives you the hints!). Many thanks Lutra
Dear TUFLOW users, We have started a crowd-funding campaign to refactor and port Crayfish to QGIS 3. The current Crayfish will not work in the upcoming QGIS. In addition, we'd like to add support for 3D canvas and loading large files. http://www.lutraconsulting.co.uk/crowdfunding/qgis-crayfish-3/ We will prioritise support of the formats for users who contribute to the crowd-funding. Regards, Lutra Consulting
Recently I've bumped into an issue with Crayfish being unable to load large XMDF result files. When result files exceed some unknown threshold of either number of cells or file size, the Crayfish plugin is unable to load the file. I've spoken to the good people at Lutra Consulting who developed the plugin and while they are aware of the issue, the plugin has taken on a life of its own and they can't continue to maintain and trouble-shoot it for everyone. This got me wondering: 1. Has anyone else come across this issue? If so, what have you found out about the limits and possible solutions / work-arounds? 2. Would there be interest from other users in pulling together a consortium to co-fund support and development of Crayfish into the future? Alternatively, a consortium could be assembled to fund the resolution of this specific issue only. 3. Are there plans for TUFLOW to expand their current QGIS plugin to offer more of the functionality of Crayfish? If not, would there be interest in leading and supporting a consortium? ds.
