You can enable snapping and add a new polyline and then select both and merge them into 1. Right-click to enable snapping and highlighting.

Hi, I get an error "external component has thrown an exception" when delineating through automatic watershed delineation using mapwindow 4.8.6 in Basins/HSPF. Any help?

Sorry for this late response. MW v4.8 is no longer actively supported by the MapWindow Community. Because it is still used in BASINS +Mark Gray from AquaTerra might be able to help you.

TauDEM may not be able to run with your elevation grid. If your grid is much larger than the area you need to delineate, it may help to make a smaller version of the grid and use it instead. I cannot help more than this tip since I don't have much experience using TauDEM.

MapWindow v5  - 
 
I'm proud to announce we've just published new stable releases for MapWindow5 and MapWinGIS, both 32-bit and 64-bit.
I can't upload it to CodePlex anymore so I shared it on my OneDrive: http://1drv.ms/1RfLvUw
Hopefully everybody can download it.

If you find any bugs please report them on CodePlex in the 'Discussions' pages.
The previous version of MapWinGIS was downloaded 1266 (32-bit) and 1078 (64-bit) times.
MapWindow5 was downloaded 208 (32-bit) and 309 (64-bit) times.

If you are a MapWinGIS developer we strongly suggest you investigate if your application can be rewritten as a MapWindow5 plug-in.
This will give your users much more benifits and it should degrease the amount of code for you to maintain.
We can help you with this transition.

Thanks,

Paul

The problems with Codeplex are acknowledged by the Codeplex support team. A bug report is filed, but it is not clear when it will be solved.
When I have some time I will try to move from Codeplex to GitHub. But at the moment I'm very busy with several other projects.
Since we are an Open Source community everybody can step in. Let me know if somebody wants to take this task of moving the GitHub.

This singular museum is three floors full of historic Netherlands electronics. On the ground floor are many examples of large early electrical generators and engines, including the first electrical generator in the Netherlands, which surprisingly, still works.

The proprietor switches on all the big machines when one enters the museum, so your visit is accompanied by the hum, whirr, and bang of these large clattering electrical devices. What better way to appreciate the a history of electrical ingenuity?"

MapWindow v5  - 
 
 
New installers for MapWindow5 (v5.0.3) and MapWinGIS (v4.9.3.6) available

If you have a previous version of MapWindow5 it should update itself automatically. If you already did that in the last week you must have noticed MW5 keeps asking to install the new downloaded version when you close MW5. This annoying bug was fix and a hotfix was released. When this hotfix is installed via the auto-updated you'll still get the question for the second time, but when you click 'Yes' to install and next cancel the installer you won't be prompted until a real new version is downloaded.
MW5 v5.0.3 has a print layout, similar as we had in MW4 but optimized for MW5. This version also has WMS support, which comes from the new version of MapWinGIS. And of course more enhancements and bug fixes.

About this community

MapWindow is an open source “Programmable Geographic Information System” that supports manipulation, analysis, and viewing of geospatial data and associated attribute data in several standard GIS data formats. MapWindow is a mapping tool, a GIS modeling system, and a GIS application programming interface (API) all in one convenient redistributable open source form. MapWindow was developed to address the need for a GIS programming tool that could be used in engineering research and project software, without requiring end users to purchase a complete GIS system, or become GIS experts. For example, a researcher or company may want to deploy a tool that lets users build and interact with maps of GPS data overlaid on USGS quad maps. One approach is to build the tool as an extension to a popular GIS software, and then require users to purchase that software to run the extension. Alternatively, the company could use MapWindow as a platform and build a specialized application that does the needed function and then give it or sell it directly to end user with no need for third party software purchases.

I'm trying to run the TauDEM watershed deliniation tools on a new install of MapWindow 4.8.8

If I choose "Automatic", the tool fails with the error
---------------------------
Automatic Watershed Delineation Error
---------------------------
The system cannot find the file specified
---------------------------

and
---------------------------
Automatic Watershed Delineation Error
---------------------------
Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or the neutral culture. Make sure "MapWinGeoProc.clsUtils.ManhattanShapes.resources" was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "MapWinGeoProc" at compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are loadable and fully signed.
---------------------------

If I try to run the tools individually, I get the error

---------------------------
Error in mwTaudem.dll
---------------------------
runflood: The system cannot find the file specified
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Because all the trouble Codeplex is giving us the last months I'm in the process of moving our source code to +GitHub.
I already managed to migrate MapWinGIS: https://github.com/MapWindow/MapWinGIS.git and MapWindow5 is still pending.

When all the source code is migrated I'll have a look in creating new releases.
I'll keep you all posted.

I define the areas and drainage systems of these two watersheds through TauDEM in MW4. After I opened the respective areas in MW5. My goal is to identify the possible environmental impacts in the watershed in yellow, because it is in a nearly fully taken area for housing developments, but that, by law, must keep some duly protected areas.

Hi +José Júnior. I'm not sure what your question is. We're working on a MW5 version of the AWD plugin using the TauDEM tools as well.

Hi +José Júnior For v4 the ocx is registered. For v5 this is no longer needed. So in theory you should be able to run both versions at once. But I haven't tried it myself. Let us know your experience.
