Schematic View is a model focused on the logic relationship of hydraulic objects, not their physical locations or appearance. It will demonstrate in a straightforward way about how those objects are connected with each other. Because of this unique characteristic, it is highly recommended for small modeling practice and quickly trying out of an idea, when GIS location or shapefiles is missing or is not study interest.
Schematic View is widely used in the OTTHYMO projects. Right click on the Schematic View to open the context menu. The functionalities and tools in the context menu operates in a similar way for OTTHYMO and VO-SWMM projects.
