The Load Input Datasets tool should be run after creating a new GNAT Riverscapes project with the Create New GNAT Project. The input stream network and network topology table are datasets generated by the tools in Step 1 - Stream Network Preparation. The input dataset names and filepaths will be stored in the project.rs.xml file for future reference.
Input stream network feature class
- A polyline feature class representing the initial state of the stream network, prior to any manual editing, spatial and/or attribute queries. This feature class is produced by the Build Network Topology Table tool.
Network topology table (optional)
- A table (typically named StreamNetworkTable.dbf) that is produced by the Build Network Topology Table tool, found in Step 1 - Stream Network Preparation.
Riverscapes Project Management
GNAT Project XML (optional)
- THe XML file (project.rs.xml) which stores information on the associated Riverscapes project.
