The GIS Weasel - An Interface for the Development of Spatial Parameters for Physical Process Modeling
Entry ID: USGS_GIS_WEASEL


Summary
Abstract: GIS Weasel is a software system designed to aid users in preparing spatial information as input to lumped and distributed parameter environmental simulation models (ESMs). The GIS Weasel provides geographic information system (GIS) tools to help create maps of geographic features relevant to the application of a user’s ESM and to generate parameters from those maps. The operation of the GIS ... View entire text
