Pros: The software allows one to undertake hydraulic analysis in a very efficient manner. The easy to use interface and geographic tools allow you to complete tasks in a much shorter time than using traditional methods. GeoHECRAS provides a cost effective solution compared to other similar softwares with focus on the key tools that are used most often by water resources engineers in southern Ontario.

Cons: After years of use, there is still a lot of room to integrate more features to simplify/automate the modeling design and analysis process.

Overall: GeoHECRAS provides cost savings to our clients because it significantly cuts modelling time through ease of use and integrated GIS tools.

Pros: The software has capabilities to import maps, photographs, and other features available from online sources. These items save time by making them readily available as a component of the software. The capability to provide georeferenced data is helpful in providing solutions to real world problems easily located on the ground. Numerous features to select data from graphical input or from tabular entry of data are very helpful. The capability to merge DEM data sets with CAD or survey data is very helpful. Support team seems to be available and helpful when needed.

Cons: Program is updated frequently. Installation of the updates was cumbersome for me and required help from the support team. The support team did provide tips on how best to address this issue.

Overall: The software has allowed our company to provide more detail data for our clients in a more timely and efficient manner. State and Federal regulatory agencies seems to like output generated from detail DEM and LIDAR data.

Pros: GeoHECRAS provides the features of HEC-RAS, RAS, HEC-GeoRAS, ArcGIS including the Analysis Add-ons, and AutoCAD in one software package, where you can actually see your model as you develop it, add or remove sections, edit bridges and structures, and plot the floodlines. The model includes all the features of these programs that you require for a complete model in one package.

Cons: I cannot think of any significant drawback in GeoHECRAS. As we issue our wish list to the CivilGeo, they proceed to improve the software.

Overall: I have used the model now for over 4 years, and my experiences have been very positive.

Pros: I like that it includes all of the basic hydrology and hydraulic tools all in the same software package. It is very convenient to have this software as a "one stop shopping" experience.

Cons: Selection and windowing is cumbersome at times and takes a little to get used to as it is different than AutoCAD or Windows.
