Interactive, graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are being developed for the NCCHE flow, sediment transport, and water quality models. Each GUI provides a convenient environment for input datapreparation and model operation. They also provide advanced visualization capabilities and tools to facilitate the application of the NCCHE models to real-life engineering problems.
Each graphical interface program has been designed to provide the most convenient set of tools for the model user. The CCHE1D interface program is integrated into ArcView GIS to facilitate the use of GIS data and to simplify integration with watershed models. The CCHE2D and CCHE3D GUIs are implemented using OpenGL to provide fast, high quality computer graphics, including the production of video animations.
Graphical interfaces for the CCHE1D and CCHE2D models are part of free software packages, and are distributed with the respective models. For more information on the research related to graphical interface programs, click here.
