Watershed modelers now have a tool that allows them to connect their models to receiving water models as well as meterological data, cost data, and BMP performance data. Framework Version 2.0 is a software environment that makes it easy for modelers to not only develop statistics and charts by directly reading results from models, such as SWMM and CE-QUAL-W2, but connect those models, so that one provides inputs to the other. The Framework does not attempt to recreate the watershed or receiving water models, but efficiently connects the outputs and inputs together so that watershed managers can more effectively plan and design BMP implementation for their specific watershed needs. Framework Version 2.0 is expected to be released in the summer of 2014.
This webcast will provide an overview of Framework Version 2.0 and a step-by-step tutorial session.
