ArcGIS-SWAT: A GIS interface for the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) Conference Paper uri icon


  • ArcGIS-SWAT, a GIS interface for the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT has been developed. It is an ArcView 8.x extension that uses objects defined according to the ArcObjects standard, which conform to the Component Object Model (COM) protocol; and its code has been written entirely in Visual Basic (VB). It consists of a data model in geodatabase format specifically designed for SWAT, and the necessary tools to populate it, prepare the SWAT input files and write the SWAT simulation results back to it. The data model approach has the advantage of being the repository of all the data (including the geographic data) of a SWAT simulation.
