6.9.1IFF Configure

IFF-files (iMOD Flowpath Files) in iMOD represent line data generated by the Pathline Simulation function (see section 7.14). This function uses IMODPATH to compute flowlines based on the budget terms that result from an iMODFLOW computation.

IFF Configure is used to define the settings for display and assigns a symbol, colour or label to the flowlines. The options are similar to the IPF Configure function (see section 6.8.1).

Select the menu option IFF Configure from the IFF-options menu in the Map menu to display the IFF Configure window. Or, use right-click anywhere on the canvas to open the popup menu. Select the option IFF-options and then choose IFF Configure.

IFF Configure window:


The IFF-configure window is comparable to the IPF-configure window (see section 6.8.1) except that some functions are not active.
