Recently, the

*flex*AEM Remediation Calculator Toolkit was updated and expanded to reflect the new features and software enhancements included in the latest version of AnAqSim (2019-1). The expanded Toolkit now includes the “Transform Calculator” utility, which allows the user to take one of the 15 calculators and manipulate the calculator geometry to better match your site’s spatial coordinates and groundwater flow direction.
The Transform Calculator utility translates the lower left
corner of the calculator to match the entered coordinates, it then rotates and
scales the calculator to the desired angle and size to fit with site x-y
coordinates (we recommend using feet or meters).

Each input to the Transform Calculator utility is briefly
described below:

**Select Calculator:**

·
Select 1 of the 15 calculators provided in the
toolkit.

**X Translation:**

·
Moves the calculator along the x-axis.

**Y Translation:**

·
Moves the calculator along the y-axis.

**Rotation (degrees):**

·
Rotates your calculator counterclockwise from
the x-axis around the origin (lower left corner) of the selected calculator.

**X Dimension:**

·
Sets the length of your calculator along its
no-flow boundary (the selected calculator’s x-axis). All base calculators start
out as 5000 x 5000. Negative numbers will mirror the model around the y-axis
(this may create some issues, rotating by 180 degrees is better).

**Y Dimension:**

·
Sets the length of your calculator along its
constant head boundary (the selected calculator’s y-axis). All base calculators
start out as 5000 x 5000. Negative numbers will mirror the model around the
x-axis (this may create some issues, rotating by 180 degrees is better).

**Output File Name:**

·
Enter a name for your calculator (saves in the
flexAEM Remediation Calculator Toolkit folder) or

**Browse**to save your calculator in a different location.**Transform:**

·
Transforms the selected calculator and saves it
with the Output File Name.

Once the calculator transformation is complete, a .dxf map
of key site features can be imported into AnAqSim to quickly and easily visualize
the transformed calculator for your site, and produce report ready graphics.
Below, the Funnel & Gate calculator has been rotated by 15 degrees and adjusted
in the X and Y directions to match site coordinates. Finally, a .dxf site map
has been brought into the transformed Funnel & Gate calculator using

**Plot Input / What to Plot**and selecting**color**from the**Basemap**drop down menu and then**Select**ing the**Basemap_File**for the site.
