Welcome to the Virtual Watershed's modeling platform. If you've been here before you may want to continue along to the modeling dashboard. If not, please read on to learn how to use the Virtual Watershed online modeling system.
This system is built on a number of tools developed by WC-WAVE developers. Embedded in this Virtual Watershed webapp is Moinul Hossain's modeling service, known on GitHub as the vwadaptor project. We currently support two models to be run through the Dashboard. In the near future we plan to also run Dr. Donna Delparte's lab's gridding tool and MODFLOW. Tucker Chapman is currently the lead developer of the project that was initiated by Joel Johansen. You can even read his thesis to get more information.
To get started using this system you will need to provide data. Currently
we only have instructions ready for iSNOBAL. Follow this link
to an IPython notebook
to learn how to generate an iSNOBAL-ready netCDF. It is meant to be
run from within the vw-py
It's included in non-runnable HTML format below. Go to GitHub, clone the
repository, follow the installation instructions on the GitHub repository
page, and you should be good to go. That is not easy to do, and whenever
you have trouble please get in touch as
soon as possible! Your feedback helps us improve these instructions and
the whole Virtual Watershed.
