HidroSIG GIS
Entry ID: HidroSIG


Summary
Abstract: HidroSIG is a Geographical Information System (GIS) with special tools that
will allow you to make estimations and analysis of hydrological, climatic and
geomorphological variables.

Developed at Postgrado in Aprovechamiento de Recursos Hidraulicos (Universidad
Nacional de Colombia, Facultad de Minas, Medellin), HIDROSIG is a tool that
constitutes an important input to be used in multiple sectors of the social,
economic and environmental planning, with base in the supply of the water
resource.
