[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The GIS Weasel is a map and Graphical User Interface (GUI) driven tool that has
been developed as an aid to modelers in the delineation, characterization, and
parameterization of Modeling Response Units (MRUs) for use in distributed or
lumped parameter physical process models. The term MRU is intended to be a
generic reference to the spatial feature type or types that a ... View entire text
