8. Importing/Exporting Data
Importing Non-native GMS Files
GMS can import many files generated by other software in their native format. The files that can be imported to
GMS are shown in the tables below. Each file type is identified by the file extension. The file filter corresponding to
the desired extension should be selected in the Open File dialog.
File Import Wizard
In addition to the file types listed below, several other types of data can be imported via the File Import Wizard.
Refer to the section on the File Import Wizard for more information.

Description
GMS uses super files to help organize model files, which can be numerous. Opening the super file will import the
entire model and all associated model files. This will NOT open any GMS specific data, such as Map data or TIN
data etc. The file models associated with each super file extension are as follows: *.mfs = MODFLOW, *.rsp =
MODPATH, *.mts = MT3DMS, *.rts = RT3D, *.sms = SEAM3D, *.uts = UTCHEM, *.fws = FEMWATER,
*.ats = ART3D, *.sps = SEEP2D
Text files where the data is in columns, as you might export from a spreadsheet. This brings up the GMS File
Import Wizard. Many different types of data can be brought in to GMS by using the File Import Wizard.
Vector drawing data used for background display or for conversion to feature objects.
Raster image files used for background display or for texture mapping to a surface.
ArcView shapefiles.
ASCII 2D grid exported from Arc/Info or ArcView, ASCII 2D grid exported from GRASS
ASCII 2D grid exported from Surfer.

File Import Wizard
GMS can import many files generated by other software in their native format. Refer to Importing Non-native GMS
Files for a list. For files that are not included in the list, GMS provides the File Import Wizard.
The File Import Wizard enables users to import many different types of data into GMS. The File Import Wizard is
initialized by selecting a *.txt file in the Open command from the File menu. The wizard has two steps.
Step 1 – Delimiting Columns
The first step in the wizard allows users to delimit the data into columns. Two options exist to delimit the data:
Delimited, Fixed Width.
For the Delimited option, typical delimiters are included as well as an option for users to specify a delimiter.
Columns can also be specified with a fixed width by clicking on the ruler bar or the window with the data. Break
lines can be dragged, and they can be deleted by double-clicking on the break line or dragging them off the screen.
The user can specify the starting row the data will be imported at. If your data has a row of headings, you can
indicate such and GMS will use the headings in the next step to determine what kind of data each column represents.
Step 2 – Assigning Column
Types
The first 20 lines of the file are displayed in
a spreadsheet according to the file outline
specified in step 1. This step lets you pick
what kind of data you are importing (see
Supported File Formats). A "no data flag"
can be specified for the file. This is a
number that, when encountered in the file,
tells GMS to mark the value as "NULL" or
"no data".
Step 1 File import options of the File Import Wizard.
The data in the columns are identified by
selecting the type in the combo box at the
top of each column in the spreadsheet. If a row of headings exists, GMS will automatically select the proper type if it
recognizes the heading. Otherwise they are Not Mapped by default. The available column types changes depending
on the GMS data type selected. Certain column types must be mapped for each file format before the user can
progress to the next step in the wizard. The name of each column is changed by editing the Header cell.
File Import Wizard

After the data have been imported, the
coordinate transformation tools can be used
to transform and translate the data.
Step 2 (File Format) of the File Import Wizard.
File Import Wizard Supported File Formats
The File Import Wizard can import various types of data as described in the tables below.
2D scatter points
This will create new scatter points in a new 2D scatter set. Optionally the imported points can be filtered using the
filter options available by selecting the Filter Options button.

Any number of steady-state or transient datasets can be imported. When importing transient datasets, a dataset name
and a time step must be specified for each transient column. Names and time steps are entered into the header row,
separated by a vertical slash using the following format: "Name|Timestep". For example, "Dataset1|January 1, 1900".
All time steps of a transient dataset should be given the same name.

Transient observation data
This adds time series curves to existing points in an existing observation coverage. The targeted coverage must be
the active coverage.
The existing points and the data being imported are matched by Name or ID. If both Name and ID are specified then
ID will take precedence.
Both Date and Time can be specified although data can be imported with only Date or only Time specified (at least
one of these fields must be specified). If only the Date is specified then the time is set to 12:00:00 AM. If only Time
is specified then it is assumed that the user is not using date/time format and the time is treated as a relative time.

MODFLOW Well Package data
This creates new well BCs in an existing MODFLOW simulation. Both steady state (one flow rate per well) or
transient data (multiple flow rates at different times per well) can be imported. With transient data, multiple rows are
used to list flow rates at different times (or date/times) and the Well Name field is used to associate the flow rates
with the correct well. The times for changes in flow rate do not need to match the model stress period times. Flow
rate curves are treated as stair step data and the rate for each stress period is found by temporal (time) interpolation.
The user is asked if they want to use the average flow rate for each stress period, or use the flow rate at the beginning
of each stress period.

Transient point data
This creates new time series curve data on existing feature points similar to the "Pumping data" option above. This
option is more generic than the "Pumping data" option, however, because it will work with feature points of any type
and any attribute (that can be transient) of that feature point.
The existing points and the data being imported are matched by Name or ID or X and Y. The order of precedence
for these fields is ID, Name, then X and Y.
Both Date and Time can be specified although data can be imported with only Date or only Time specified (at least
one of these fields must be specified). If only the Date is specified then the time is set to 12:00:00 AM. If only Time
is specified then it is assumed that the user is not using date/time format and the time is treated as a relative time.
Data for more than one attribute can be imported at the same time. The attributes of the active coverage are listed as
available fields that can be mapped.

Importing/Exporting CAD Data
Importing
GMS can import DWG or DXF files via the File|Open command. If there is already CAD data in memory, GMS
will replace the existing data with the data being imported. Currently, GMS cannot merge the incoming data with the
data in memory.
Exporting
GMS data can be exported to a DWG or DXF file that can then be read into a CAD software package. If there is
CAD data in memory when a GMS project is saved, GMS creates a new DWG file from the CAD data. The file is
put in the same folder with the other project files and named using the project prefix.
Any CAD data in memory can be exported by right-clicking the CAD folder in the Project Explorer and selecting the
Export command. The DWG/DXF Filename dialog will appear, and you can select either the DWG of DXF file
types to save the CAD data. GMS objects must first be converted to CAD data before CAD data can be exported. To
convert GMS data to CAD data, use the Convert To CAD command in the Display Menu.
Starting at GMS 9.0, multiple CAD files can be included in the project at once. GMS does not write to these files
when the GMS project is saved, it merely links to the CAD files.
CAD Properties
The CAD Properties dialog displays data about the CAD file such as: path on disk, extents in xy, and file version.
Importing USGS DEMs

Importing USGS DEMs
The Import USGS DEMs dialog is used to
examine the limits of DEM files as well as
defining a clipping boundary to eliminate
regions outside the area of interest prior to
actually reading the elevations in. The Add
button is used to add a new file to the list of
files (you can now select multiple DEM files
at the same time rather than adding them one
at a time, but they must all be of the same
format) that will be read. The standard file
opening dialog appears from which you may
select DEM files. Once the file(s) are added
to the list a bounding rectangle is displayed in
the small graphics window in the center of
the dialog. As additional files are added the
graphics region is updated with new
rectangles in order to provide an
understanding of where DEMs are located in
relation to one another.
A small black rectangle is displayed in the
central graphics window. Only elevation
points inside this rectangular region will be
read in when hitting OK from this dialog.
This boundary rectangle can be modified in
three different ways.
Import USGS DEMs dialog
• DRAGGING – Using the mouse you can click near one of the four edges of the bounding rectangle and drag it to
a new location. If you click near a corner both edges will be adjusted. If you click in the center of the rectangle
then the entire rectangle can be translated to a new location. As you drag edges to new locations their
corresponding values are automatically updated in the Edit Fields.
• EDIT FIELDS – Any one of the western, eastern, northern, or southern boundaries can be explicitly set by
changing the values in their corresponding edit fields. As new values are entered the display in the small graphics
window can be updated by tabbing or by clicking the cursor outside the current edit field.
• ENCLOSE ALL DEMs – This button can be used to force the edges of the bounding rectangle to correspond to
the limits of the DEM files which have been added to this point. By default when a new DEM file is added the
bounding rectangle is adjusted to enclose all DEMs.
The thinning factor can be used to reduce the number of elevation points read. A thinning factor of 2 means that
every other row and column would be read, reducing the number of total points by a factor of 4. A factor of three
means that every third row and column would be read reducing the total by a factor of 9, etc.
The elevation units toggle can be used to specify whether imported DEM points have meter or feet for units of
elevation. If a DEMs base elevation units are feet and the toggle specified meters, all elevations are converted when
reading. This is particularly important when trying to read two adjacent DEMs with different base elevation units.
Also see about transforming coordinate systems.
Importing USGS DEMs
NOTE: This option does not change the base planimetric units of the DEM and you should make the elevation units
consistent with the planimetric units in order to ensure that slopes are computed properly when computing basin
geometric parameters.
At the bottom of this dialog the total number of DEM points from all DEM files which have been added and the
approximate number of points inside the bounding rectangle are displayed. These numbers can be used to determine
how many points your system is capable of reading. For example, each DEM point requires 5 bytes of memory, so
that if you read an entire 1:250,000 DEM with about 1.4 million points, 1.4 meg * 5 bytes = 7 meg of memory would
be required (in addition to whatever other memory being used by GMS). This means that you would need at least 8
meg of RAM, or some type of virtual memory capabilities would be required to read in the entire DEM file.
This same dialog is used for all five types of DEMs supported in the GMS import options: USGS, ARC/INFO®,
GRASS, DTED, and SDTS.
DEMs in Different UTM Zones
Occasionally two adjacent USGS DEM files will be read in but do not appear adjacent in the import dialog. This
occurs because while the two DEMs are adjacent, they lie in different UTM zones. X coordinates within UTM zones
repeat and therefore the DEMs do not lie adjacent to one another as they should. WMS does not contain the utility
functions necessary to transform a DEM from one UTM coordinate zone to another. However, GMS, ARC/INFO®
and possibly other GIS software can be used to convert from one zone to another.
Importing/Exporting GIS Grids
GMS includes an option to import and export grid files from/to either the GRASS or ARC/INFO (ArcView)
geographic information systems formats.
Importing
Grids are imported using the Open command in the File menu.
With GRASS and ARC/INFO grid files, the grid and the attributes are saved to a single file. When a grid file is
imported, GMS constructs the grid, and then reads in the attribute matrix as a dataset.
When a grid in GRASS or ARC/INFO contains multiple attributes (datasets), each attribute is written to a separate
grid file. In such cases, it is possible to read in one instance of the grid file to create a grid with a single dataset, and
then read in the other grids as extra datasets on the first grid. This can be accomplished as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Select the Open command from the File menu.
Choose either the GRASS or ARC/INFO file filter.
Select the grid file.
Select the OK button.
At this point, the first grid file is imported resulting in a grid with a single dataset. For the additional datasets, steps
1-5 are repeated but now GMS will detect that there is already a 2D grid in memory that matches the grid being
imported and will ask whether you want to replace the existing grid, or add the new grid as a dataset of the existing
grid.
12
Importing/Exporting GIS Grids
13
Exporting
Grids can be exported from GMS in the GRASS or ARC/INFO format by right-clicking on the grid in the Project
Explorer and selecting the Export menu command. Only grids with equal row heights and equal column widths can
be exported. When a grid is exported, the grid and the active dataset are written to the GIS file. If multiple datasets
are associated with the grid, each dataset should be made the active dataset and the grid should be exported
repeatedly so that each dataset is written to a separate grid file.
Importing/Exporting Shapefiles
Shapefile files
When a shapefile is saved from ArcGIS, multiple files are saved. The files are described in the following table.
When the shapefile (*.shp) is imported to GMS, the database file (*.dbf) and (*.prj) files are automatically imported
at the same time.
File Extension
Decription
*.shp
This file contains the geometry of the points, lines, or polygons.
*.dbf
This is a relational database file. The properties of the feature objects are stored in this file.
*.shx
This is an index file. It is ignored by GMS.
*.prj
Projection file [optional]. Contains the projection information for the data which GMS uses to project the data on-the-fly.
Import
Shapefiles are imported to GMS using Open command in the File menu and selecting the *.shp extension.
Drag-and-drop is also supported. Shapefiles are handled in GMS by the GIS Module and are listed in the Project
Explorer under GIS Layers.
Export
GMS can export the following object types as shapefiles:
•
•
•
•
•
Feature Objects
2D Scatter points
3D Scatter points
3D Grids
UGrids
The Export command can be found by right-clicking on the object in the Project Explorer.
Exporting Feature Objects
In GMS, a single coverage can contain points, nodes, arcs and polygons. Shapefiles, however, can only contain one
type of attribute. Thus, when exporting a coverage as a shapefile, GMS can export up to three shapefiles depending
on the type of objects in the GMS coverage. For example, if the GMS coverage contains arcs, points and nodes, the
user can export the arcs to one shapefile and the points and nodes to a separate point shapefile. The user can control
which shapefiles GMS will create when more than one is possible. The names for the shapefiles come from the
prefix listed at the top of the dialog, appended with "_pts" for the point shapefile, "_arcs" for the arc shapefile, and
"_polys" for the polygon shapefile.
Importing/Exporting Shapefiles
With the current version of GMS, only steady state data can be exported to a shapefile. Transient properties are not
saved to the file.
The table of attributes that is exported matches the table that is displayed in the properties dialog when editing
feature objects.
Currently, you can only export one coverage at a time to shapefiles.
Converting Shapefiles to Other Object Types
Shapefiles can be converted to the following types of objects:
•
•
•
•
Feature Objects
2D Scatter points
3D Scatter points
UGrids
Conversion to Feature Objects
When converting a shapefile to feature objects the GIS to Feature Objects Wizard is used.
Shapefile Properties
The tables below indicate how GMS imports and exports shapefile properties. A "type" field must exist as an
attribute when importing so GMS knows what kind of attribute to assign to the object. If the "type" field is not
found, GMS will import the objects as generic objects without properties and the Map Shapefile Properties dialog
will not appear.
A single shapefile may contain objects with different attribute types. Different attribute types require different fields,
as shown in the tables. The X's in the table indicate which fields correspond with which attribute types. GMS writes
-999 to empty cells when exporting because shapefiles have no way of flagging "null" or "no data" fields. If a field is
not required based on the attribute types of the objects to be exported, the field will not be included.
GMS only supports importing of steady state data (one moment in time) from shapefiles.
MODFLOW/MT3D Local Sources Sinks Coverage
For MODFLOW/MT3D local source/sink coverages, if a node is attached to more than one arc, it can have more
than one attribute type. When GMS exports these nodes, it exports one node for every attribute type the node has. So
the shapefile might end up with several points in the same location, each with different properties. When importing,
GMS will resolve all nodes found in the same location to one node and assign the node the union of the properties of
all the nodes.
Note that the following options only work for steady state data. Transient well data can be imported using the
Pumping Well Data File formats.

The fields exported for MODFLOW/MT3D layer coverages depend on what properties are defined for the polygons.
They also depend on which flow package (LPF, BCF or HUF) is selected in the Coverage Properties dialog.
Similarly when importing GMS looks for the appropriate fields based on the selected flow package.
The following table lists the attributes that go with each flow package.

When importing shapefiles into an observation coverage, information should exist in the Int (interval) and Conf
(confidence) fields, or in the Stdev (standard deviation) field but not both. The confidence value should be an integer
between 0 and 100 (i.e., 95 means 95% confidence). GMS will assign default values if there is any information
missing.

Shapefiles
Shapefiles
One of the most common methods for creating feature objects is to import a shapefile. The concept of a shapefile
was established by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) [1] in their ArcView® program and it has
become the defacto standard for sharing GIS vector data (points, lines, and polygons).
A shape file is actually comprised of three or more files. The primary file is the *.shp and it contains the geometric
information (coordinates and if necessary connectivity of the points, lines, polygons). The *.dbf file is a standard
database file and stores the attributes of the feature objects. Finally, there will be a *.shx file which is an indexing
file. There may be a few other files that accompany the shapefile and so you should always move them around
together if you are copying or moving them to a new directory.
Only one "theme" or type of feature can exist in a shapefile. For example you cannot store points and polygons in the
shapefile, or boundaries and so you may be required to import multiple files.
XMS software includes all of the tools necessary to import shapefiles and convert the geometric and attribute
information into feature objects. This can be done by directly opening the shapefile and converting to feature objects
in the active coverage or by loading the shapefile in the GIS module.

Import From Database
The "Database Import Wizard" allows users to access data stored in a database and import it. The wizard is invoked
by selecting the Import from Database command from the File menu. The data types that can be imported by the
Database Import Wizard are the same data types that are supported by the "File Import Wizard".
The Database Import Wizard has four steps:
Step 1 – Connecting to a Database
Step 1 of the wizard lets you set up a connection to a database. To connect to a database either on the same computer
or on a network press the Connect to Database button. Once a database connection is created, a path to the database
and the different tables in the database are displayed. When a table is selected its columns are displayed along with
the number of rows in that table.
Step 2 – Querying Information from a Database Table
Step 2 allows you to create, copy, delete, and import queries that retrieve data from a database. To help in writing the
queries, the tables in the database are displayed, as well as the columns in the selected table.
Some SQL Basics The query is an SQL (Structured Query Language) statement. The SQL statement is entered in the
Query SQL statement edit field. An example of an SQL statement would be: “SELECT x, y, z, toluene FROM
multipledatasets”. This statement means that columns x, y, z, and toluene from the table multipledatasets will be
retrieved from a database. SQL statements are case sensitive. SQL statements also require brackets around table or
column names that have spaces. For example, to query data from a table titled “x coordinate” in the SQL statement it
would be written as [x coordinate]. A full explanation of SQL is beyond the scope of this document.
You can write a short description for each query in the Query description edit field. The New button creates a new
query that has a default name, description, and SQL statement. The Copy button creates a copy of the currently
17
Import From Database
selected query. The Delete button deletes the currently selected query.
The queries you define are saved automatically by GMS in a file called gmsquery.ini, located in the folder where
GMS is installed. The Import button allows you to import a list of queries from any file that follows the same
format as the gmsquery.ini file.
Step 3 – Viewing the Results of the Query
Step 3 displays the results of the database query. Only the first 20 rows are displayed in a spreadsheet. If the results
are not what you wanted, you can go back to Step 2 and modify the query.
Step 4 – Assigning Column Types
The first 20 lines of the file are displayed in a spreadsheet according to the file outline specified in step 1. This step
lets you pick what kind of data you are importing (see Supported File Formats). A "no data flag" can be specified for
the file. This is a number that, when encountered in the file, tells GMS to mark the value as "NULL" or "no data".
The data in the columns are identified by selecting the type in the combo box at the top of each column in the
spreadsheet. If a row of headings exists, GMS will automatically select the proper type if it recognizes the heading.
Otherwise they are Not Mapped by default. The available column types changes depending on the GMS data type
selected. Certain column types must be mapped for each file format before the user can progress to the next step in
the wizard. The name of each column is changed by editing the Header cell.
After the data have been imported, the GMS:Coordinate Transformation tools can be used to transform and translate
the data.
Get Online Maps
The Get Online Maps button allows
you to select online data from a variety
of different sources. Once online maps
has been selected, the data resolution
will be automatically adjusted based on
your zoom parameters. Online maps
can only be viewed in plan view.
Online maps are raster datasets that
can contain imagery, elevation, or land
use information. If you have online
maps in your program, you can
right-click on each of the maps to
convert them to static images that can
be saved to your local hard drive. You
can convert or interpolate online maps
containing elevation data to various
elevation formats.
Note that online data sources are on
Get Online Maps Dialog
external servers that we have no
control over. The data may draw/export very slowly or become unavailable at any time. We have no control over
this.
18
Get Online Maps
19
The Advanced button allows you to select from other data sources and to use other online data query functions that
may not be fully supported. In the Advanced dialog, the Add Sources From File button allows you to add new Web
Map Service (WMS) sources from an external text file.

Exporting to a File
An online map can be exported to a file and loaded into the project. You may want to do this to save a local copy and
not be dependent on internet access. Also, there may be more commands and options available with a local file, such
as interpolation or conversion to other object types, than with online maps.

Multiple Objects
If multiple objects are selected and they are all of the same type, they will all be exported to the same text file.
Folders
If a folder of objects is selected, then all of the geometric objects in the folder will be exported. Datasets will not be
exported. If there are subfolders in the folder, all of the geometric objects will be recursively exported in all
subfolders.
Images
An image is typically a scanned map or aerial photo in TIFF or JPEG format. Images can be imported to GMS and
displayed in the background to aid in the placement of objects as they are being constructed or simply to enhance a
plot. Images can also be draped or "texture mapped" onto a TIN, 2D grid, 2D mesh, or the top of a 3D grid or 3D
mesh.
Image display options are changed in the Project Explorer. The
options are as follows:
• Visibility – The Visibility of an Image is turned off by toggling
the check box next to the image in the Project Explorer.
• Transparency – The Transparency of the images can be
changed by right-clicking on the image folder in the Project
Explorer and selecting the Transparency command.
• Crop Collar – USGS quad sheet collars can be removed from
an image by right-clicking on an image in the Project Explorer
and selecting the Crop Collar Command.

Getting Images via Online Maps
Free imagery can be obtained from the internet via the Get Online Maps feature. A local image file can be created
from an online map via the Export command.
Importing an Image
Images are read into GMS by using the File | Open command. GMS supports many different image file types.
Image Pyramids
Image pyramids can be created when an image is imported into GMS. Image pyramids are multiple resolution copies
of the original image that are created and saved to speed up display. With pyramids, a lower resolution copy of the
image displays quickly when drawing the entire image. As you zoom in, copies of the original image resampled at
finer resolutions are then drawn. This option allows for optimal performance and clear image display.
See Image Pyramids for more information.
Images
Multiple Images
GMS allows more than one image at a time; however, you will want to insure that each image is in the same
coordinate system.
Geo-Referenced Images
Some images have the coordinate system embedded in the file. Also, some images will have a separate file called a
world file (for example: a tiff world file, *.tfw). These files are "geo-referenced." When these files are opened GMS
automatically registers the image to the real world coordinate location specified. In the case where a separate world
file is used, GMS will automatically find it and register the image if the world file has the same filename prefix as
the image file and is in the same folder.
If the image file is not geo-referenced then you will have to register the image manually. (See Registering an Image)
When the GMS project is saved, a link to the image is saved in the project file, along with the current image
registration information so that the image is re-registered to the same coordinates every time the project is opened.
The original image file and world file (if one exists) are not altered.
Exporting Images
An image can be exported by right-clicking on the image in the Project Explorer and selecting the Export command.
When exporting, the image file type and the resolution can be specified. Only the image which is open in GMS is
exported, not the entire Graphics Window.
The entire Graphics Window can also be saved to an image file via the File | Save As command. A number of
different image file types are supported such as: BMP, PNG, JPG, and TIF.
Texture Mapping Images
GMS allows you to drape an image over the top of a TIN, grid, or mesh. However, only the first image listed in the
project explorer will be texture mapped onto the TIN, grid, or mesh. You can change the order of the images in the
project explorer by selecting the image and dragging it to a new location in the project explorer.
Image Properties
The Image Properties dialog can be opened by right-clicking on an image in the Project Explorer and selecting the
Properties command from the pop-up menu. This dialog displays information about the image, such as name, path,
type, pixel size etc.
DEMs / Rasters
See Rasters.
22
Registering an Image
23
Registering an Image
If an image file is not geo-referenced then the user must define the coordinate system of the image. The register
dialog allows the user to specify the coordinate system for the image. When an image is opened, if the image is not
self-referenced, XMS attempts to find world file with the same name as the image (*.wld or *.jpgw extension). If
neither of these is found, the register dialog opens.
What is Image Registration?
Before an image can be displayed, the image must be "registered" or geo-referenced. Registering an image involves
identifying points on the image corresponding to locations with known real world (XY) coordinates. Once these
points are identified, they are used to scale and translate the image to the proper location when it is drawn with the
other objects in the Graphics Window. If an image is not registered properly, any objects which are created using the
background image as a guide will have the wrong coordinates.
Register Image Dialog
An image is registered using the Register Image dialog. The main feature of the Register Image dialog is a large
window in which the image is displayed. Two or three points (shown by "+" symbols) are also displayed in the
window. These points are used to identify locations with known real world coordinates. The real world coordinates
(X,Y) and image coordinates (U,V) of the registration points are listed in edit fields below the image. The points are
moved to the desired locations on the image by dragging the points using the tools described below. Once the points
are located, the real world coordinates can be entered in the corresponding edit fields. The dialog contains the
following options:
• 2 point or 3 point registration – Two point registration rotates and uniformly scales an image. Three point
registration allows for non-uniform scaling to account for some parallax.
• Import World File – Used to import a TIFF world file (*.tfw). A TIFF world file has the information needed to
set the (X,Y) and (U,V) coordinates in order to place the image in the correct world coordinates.
• Image name – Used to associate a name with the file. This name will appear in the project explorer.
Register Image Dialog Tools
The following tools can be used to help position the registration points:
Tool
Tool Name
Description
Select Point
Tool
The Select Point tool is used to select and drag register points to a location on the map for which real coordinates are known
so that they can be entered in the corresponding XY edit fields.
Zoom Tool
In some cases, it is useful to magnify a portion of the image so that a registration point can be placed with more accuracy. The
Zoom Tool is used to zoom in a portion of the image.
Pan Tool
Frame
Macro
After zooming in on a portion of the image, the Pan Tool is used to pan the image vertically or horizontally.
The Frame Macro is used to automatically center the entire image within the drawing window of the dialog after panning and
zooming in on a specific location.
Registering an Image
Import World File
The Import World File button can be used to automatically define the registration data. A world file is a special file
associated with a previously registered image that is exported from ArcView® [1] or Arc/Info® [2]. The file contains
registration data that can be used to register the image.
Saving/Reading Image Registration Data
When a project file is saved, a link to the image is saved in the project file, along with the current image registration
information so that the image is re-registered to the same coordinates every time the project is opened. The original
image file and world file (if one exists) are not altered.
Convert Point Coordinate System
The x, y coordinates of each register point must be specified. If the user has the (x,y) coordinates in a different
coordinate system than their project, the coordinates will need to be converted.
GMS Point Conversion
The Convert Point button in the image registration dialog will allow the user to convert the coordinates.
SMS Point Conversion
The Single Point Conversion command in the Edit menu can be helpful if you need to convert between any two
coordinate systems. You should perform this conversion and record the locations in the correct coordinate system
prior to entering the registration dialog.
An alternative approach is to convert the coordinate system after importing by right clicking on the image in the
Project Explorer and choosing Coordinate Conversion from the right click menu.
WMS Point Conversion
The Single Point Conversion command in the Edit menu can be helpful if you need to convert between any two
coordinate systems. You should perform this conversion and record the locations in the correct coordinate system
prior to entering the registration dialog.

KMZ files
25
KMZ files
XMS software can export KMZ files. KMZ [1] files can
be imported into Google Earth [2].
KMZ files can also be imported into GMS and WMS.
Raster vs. Vector
The KMZ file format supports both vector data (lines,
points, polygons, triangles etc.) and raster data
(images). When exporting raster data, the image shown
in the XMS main graphics window is saved as a PNG
image file with georeferencing data. The data is clipped
to match the window bounds of the current view. When
A 2D Mesh inside Google Earth
exporting vector data, all data displayed, as specified
by the display options and project explorer, is exported
to a raster KMZ file. The following versions of XMS software support vector export:
• GMS – 7.1
• SMS – 10.1
• WMS – 8.1
How To Export – Screen Capture
• You must be in plan view before you can export a KMZ file.
• You can export a KMZ file by using the standard File|Save As dialog and selecting either the Google Earth©
Raster KMZ File (*.kmz) or Google Earth© Vector KMZ File (*.kmz) option in the Save as type field.
• To specify a resolution higher than the screen resolution:
• GMS – Select the Options button in the Save As dialog.
• SMS – Change the copy to clipboard scale factor in the Preferences dialog
The background color is made transparent in the exported KMZ file so the Earth can be seen through the overlayed
image in Google Earth©.
How To Export – Transient Data Animation
Export a KMZ transient data animation using the Film Loop Wizard. This will export a series of raster images which
can be animated in Google Earth©. The background color can be specified in the Film Loop Wizard. It is
recommended that the option for no background be used so the Earth can be seen through the overlayed image in
Google Earth©. You must be in Plan View to export a KMZ transient data animation.
By default, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) [3] is assumed when exporting KMZ files. An offset from UTC can
be specified. A list of time zone offsets from UTC is given here [4].
See "Viewing a Timeline" on page 90 of the Google Earth© user Guide
change the time zone used by Google Earth©.

KMZ files
Coordinate System
KMZ files contain latitude and longitude information to define the location of the image. If your current coordinate
system type is a projection, like UTM for example, and not a geographic system (which uses latitude and longitude),
XMS will attempt to determine the latitude and longitude using coordinate conversion. It's possible that the
coordinate conversion may fail, or that the distortion from converting from the current coordinate system to a
geographic system is too high. In either case, XMS will issue a warning.
Transparency
The background color is made transparent in the exported PNG image which is in the KMZ file. This makes it so
that the Earth can be seen through the overlayed image.

GeoStudio Import
Importing a GeoStudio file
A GeoStudio file may be opened from either the File menu or by drag-dropping the file into the GMS window. A
dialog similar to the figure below will appear asking which SEEP or Stability analyses to import. Only one of each
method can be selected at once. Click OK when selections have been decided and GMS will display the imported
information.

File Formats
Old GMS file formats
This PDF file [1] documents file formats used by GMS previous to version 6.5. Current versions of GMS can still
read these files.
GMS version 6.5 and up
Starting at version 6.5 the GMS project file switched to a binary HDF5 [2] format. The format is proprietary and not
documented but you can examine the contents of the project file using a free HDF5 browser [3] application. Some
things in the project file, like TINs and Meshes, follow the XMDF standard [4]. Editing the HDF5 project file can
corrupt it and make it unreadable by GMS and is highly discouraged.
Import formats
GMS can import various formats as documented on the File Import Wizard Supported File Formats page.

Dataset Files
ASCII Dataset Files
Datasets can be stored to either ASCII or binary files. The default format is binary. Datasets can be saved in ASCII
format by right clicking on the dataset in the Project Explorer and selecting the Export command from the pop up
menu. For both file formats, multiple datasets can be stored in a single file and both scalar and vector datasets can be
saved to the same file. The file format is identical for 2D and 3D datasets.
For scalar dataset files, one value is listed per vertex, cell, node, or scatter point. The points are listed sequentially in
ascending order according to the ids of the nodes, points, vertices, or cells. For vector dataset files, one set of XYZ
vector components is listed per vertex, cell, node, or scatter point. If necessary, a set of status flags can be included
in the file. If the status flag is false (0), the corresponding item (node, cell, etc.) is inactive. If status flags are not
included in the file, it is assumed that all items are active.
The ASCII Dataset file format is as follows:
DATASET
// File type identifier
OBJTYPE type
// Type of object

Using Vector and Scalar Data with Grids
For meshes, TINs, and scatter point sets, the order that the values are listed in the file is simply the sequential order
of the node, TIN, or scatter point ids. However, vector and scalar data can also be associated with the nodes or cells
of a 2D or 3D grid. T For 2D grids, data values are ordered using a row-column (I-J) priority. For 3D grids, data
values are ordered using a layer-row-column (K-I-J) priority.
The following C source code examples illustrate how a 2D or 3D array of scalar values corresponding to the nodes
of a grid would be written to the main portion of an ASCII scalar file.
2D Grid Example:
for(i=0; i<nrow; i++){
for(j=0; j<ncol; j++){
fprintf(fp, "%f\n", scalar[i][j]);
}
}
3D Grid Example:
for(k=0; k<nlay; k++){
for(i=0; i<nrow; i++){
for(j=0; j<ncol; j++){
fprintf(fp, "%f\n", scalar[k][i][j]);
