I ran multiple tests and, for my study files, when there is no dike input raster map, the maps produced have been identical whether "use dikes" is checked or not. Are you willing to share your input files so that I can look into this further? Regards -- Jonathan
If you do not have a dike file specified, the results should be identical. Please let me know which version you are using and I'll run a test and ensure there is not a software bug causing this problem.

I am running SLAMM without a dikes raster layer. When I check 'include dikes' on the execute screen, the results for Time 0 are very different than when I don't check 'include dikes'. Checking 'include dikes' results in a T=0 that is nearly identical to initial conditions, which is good (not the case when 'include dikes' is not checked). However, I don't see certain conversions that I would expect over time and that do occur when 'dikes' are not checked (specifically reg. flooded marsh converting to tidal flat). Neither run actually includes a dike layer, so I'm wondering what is causing the difference. Thanks!
I think the problem is that the ASCII DEM is treating 1.17e-38 as its NODATA value. The GIS software is then not recognizing this NODATA value. Try specifying a NODATA value of -9999 prior to conversion and this may solve the problem.
Also, look at the header in the first lines of the ASCII DEM to see if that helps understand the problem (the NODATA value is defined there.) The best way to do this is convert the file type to a TXT file and look at it in the Windows Explorer Preview pane (not Internet Explorer, just the Windows Explorer file manager).

I am having an issue when I convert my study area dem to ascii. The elevation range/values are different following the conversion (see image You cannot see attachments on this board.). dem_censustract is my original dem while dem_asc is the new file after conversion. I found one person mention a similar issue on another gis forum but the question was unanswered. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Is there a work around?
It may depend on which SLAMM version you are using. However, in general you click edit cells, make your edits using draw/fill cells, and when done you may simply close the window and you will be asked if you want to overwrite the raster (the raster will have same name as the original one but with the edits) or click "Save As ..." and save the raster and project with different names. Hope this solves your problems.

I am having trouble, once finishing the editing of the nwi within the "set map attributes" program getting the saved copy to be the new NWI layer with the now filled in blank cells. Is there a sequence in which things should be saved? I have tried closing the program and reopening with the new nwi ASCII file, and it keeps reverting to the unedited. Thank you for your time.
