Hello Everyone,

I am a hydraulic engineer in the South and Southwest Florida area. I am trying to learn and utilize the ArcHydro tools. My goal is to build a watershed/floodplain model based on the LiDAR data and export it into another program (such as ICPR or HEC-RAS) for analysis.

What I am trying to figure out is this: do I need the ArcGIS Standard license to achieve what I want to do?

I reviewed the ArcHydro Tools Overview PDF on the FTP site, and there are a few tools required the Standard license. I would think I will need to use (at least) the Terrain Morphology>Drainage Connectivity Characterization and Network Tools>Hydro Network Generation. And looking through some existing models, they all seems to have Relationship Classes in the gdb, which I believe require a Standard license to create. Though, I am not 100% sure if my suspicion is correct... If you can confirm or deny that, that would be great! Thanks in advance.

p.s. We currently have some Basic licenses and that's enough for for basic mapping and analysis.
