Title: Graphical display program for SIMCAT (202/1/A)
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
SIMCAT is a mathematical model which predicts the quality of river water throughout a river catchment. The model can be used to help plan the measures needed to improve water quality by modelling the behaviour of summary statistics of water quality such as the mean and 95 percentile. The current versions of SIMCAT have no direct method of producing graphical displays of the model simulation. The graphical display package for SIMCAT, known as CATGRAPH, has been developed under the UNIX operating system using X-windows/MOTEF packages. This provides a graphical environment with pull down menus and resizeable windows. It has been designed to run on a Personal Computer with a Intel 30386 chip. Two new graphical datafiles have been developed. These provide the link between SIMCAT and CATGRAPH. The structure of these datafiles and the changes to the SIMCAT code to produce them have been fully documented.
