M2_Water Network

Students:  Alexandre Roulin, Argyro Theodoropoulou

By questioning the past, Alexandre and I found out that the modification of the water network began in the 19th century with the correction of the Linth river. We started our analysis by making some historical maps _ diagrams before and after the construction of the Linth canal, till today. In addition, to get a better understanding of the water network, we analyzed the topography of the valley.  First we generated a 3d model of the valley using the GIS data and then we overlaid the 3d model with the waterlines and calculated the steepness of the water streams. To sum up, we made some observations at the junction of these two systems and we pointed out some possible future aspects. Rhino, Grasshopper and Photoshop were very useful tools throughout the procedure.
