View Charts

 

In Visual MODFLOW Flex, upon completing a successful model run, you can view several different types of charts to review your results and to facilitate model calibration.

 

Calibration Dashboard

The Calibration Dashboard is multi-component tabulation and charting view that is contained in its own tab.  The dashboard consists of:

a table of observations and associated modeling results that can be dynamically filtered and sorted,

a statistics panel that dynamically calculates various calibration-related statistics of data visible in the table and in the charts

charting area that can contain one or more of the following chart types:

oCalc. vs obs. chart: scatter plot comparing calculated values (y-axis) versus corresponding observations (x-axis)

oTime Series chart: line series plot of simulated results over and observed values vs time

 

Mass Balance

The Mass Balance Charts include a set of charts that present data from the mass balance outputs from the flow engine listing file:

Percent Discrepancy plots the temporal changes in the Flow Mass Balance (total flow IN minus total flow OUT) expressed as a percentage of the total flow.

IN - OUT plots the temporal change in the Flow Mass Balance (total flow IN minus the total flow OUT).

Time Series plots the temporal flows IN and OUT of the system through the individual sources and sinks (flow boundary conditions and storage).

Time Step plots a bar chart of the flow IN to the system and the flow OUT of the system through the individual sources and sinks (flow boundary conditions and storage) for selected Output Times.

 

Zone Budget

The ZoneBudget Charts include a set of charts that present data from Zone Budget runs:

Percent Discrepancy plots the temporal changes in the Flow Mass Balance for the selected zone (total flow IN minus total flow OUT) expressed as a percentage of the total flow in the zone.

IN - OUT plots the temporal change in the Flow Mass Balance for the selected zone (total flow IN minus the total flow OUT).

Time Series plots the temporal flows IN and OUT of the selected zone through the individual sources and sinks (flow boundary conditions and storage).

Time Steps plots a bar chart of the flow IN to the system and the flow OUT of the selected zone through the individual sources and sinks (flow boundary conditions and storage) for selected Output Times.
 
Note: this button is disabled if the run did not include ZoneBudget at the single run (select engines) step.
