Getting Started Tutorial
Welcome to our Getting Started page of the Help Center.
This page contains all the key tutorials to get you started with Qatium. You will get familiar with Qatium interface, our smart assistant Q and have an overview of Qatium capabilities. Qatium is an open and collaborative water management platform that helps utilities improve their water distribution system operations, SCADA and smart metering deployments, and much more.
Getting started tutorial video
What better way to get started than to have an introduction to Qatium by an expert? We created a short tutorial video to introduce you quickly to Qatium interface. In this video, Luke – our Director of Innovation – is giving you a tour of the essentials in Qatium. You will see how to :
- interact with the map,
- display various level and asset of the network,
- visualise simulations results such as flows, pressures and tank volumes and
- start asking what-if questions.
We preloaded your session with a demo model to help you get started in Qatium. This model, called Magnetic Island, is located on small island in north east Australia. It includes all the types of assets you could find in your own network: hydrants, junctions, pipes, pumps, tanks, valves and supply sources. It is a great model to start with. Although, we would love to see you upload your own network to enjoy the value of Qatium.
|Layer control button||Description|
|Allows you to display the layer control for all the network element layers;, you can click on them to hide them or make them visible (see screen capture below). The network element layers are: Pipe, Junction, Valve, Pump, Supply Source and Tank. Please note that hiding the network element layers will also hide their results (e.g. hiding the pipe layer will hide the flow layer too).|
|Allows you to display the layer control for the network levels;, you can click on the various levels to hide them or make them visible.|
|Allows you to (re)categorize the various imported layer in Qatium. A layer that has been ignored or misinterpreted can be (re)categorized to the relevant asset type (junction, pipe, pump, supply source, tank or valve). Please note that this icon is only visible when creating a model from GIS data.|
Please note that by default all network element layers and network level layers are visible.
Importing your network in Qatium
You can import your network in a GIS or EPANET format, by a simple drag and drop.
How to import your GIS network

How to import your model
You can import your EPANET 2.2 model in Qatium with a simple drag and drop in the interface, and selecting the relevant projection.
PS:Qatium is made for non modelers. You are who Qatium is intended for.
