How to connect a default groundwater GeoTiff to a Water Overlay:

  1. Prepare a GeoTiff file with the desired watertable depths.
  2. Open the configuration wizard of the Water Overlay.
  3. Continue to the step concerning ground water.
  4. Opt for "Select a Groundwater Depth GeoTiff".
  5. Select "Import". The "Geotiff selection" window will open.
  6. Select "Import new GeoTiff", and open your file.
  7. Select your file in the "Geotiff selection" window, and select "Apply".

  • Remember that the data in the groundwater GeoTiff is expected to be the depth of the watertable, the distance between the watertable and the surface.
