This section provides a quick guide on how to prepare a drainage database file, named MESH_drainage_database.r2c. A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) file and a land class file (in GeoTIFF or Shapefile format) are processed by the Green Kenue software to create the file.

Green Kenue 3.4.30

A newer version of Green Kenue is required than the version available online from National Research Council Canada.

For members of the Global Institute for Water Security, installation files for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the software are located at \\jade\WaterSecurity\Princz\GreenKenue. For others, these files are available from the Standalone MESH ftp site.

To determine what version of Green Kenue has been installed:

  • Open Green Kenue.
  • Click "Help" from the menu. Click "About ...".
    • The version is shown in the "About: Green Kenue" window.
    • A version of 3.4.30 or later is required.
