  • Genetic Programming

A VB6 based software for Genetic Programming (GP) purpose. Manual only in Chinese. Ask for availability.

 

  • uWATER (the ubiquitous WebGIS Analysis Toolkit for Extensive Resources)

http://www.isws.illinois.edu/gws/sware/uwater/

An ArcGIS Explorer Desktop plug-in for visualizing and analyzing natural resources decision support variables. The toolkit conducts a complex inquiry, undertaking spatial and characteristics inquiry at the same time, on a user-desired shapefile based on the defined criteria.

 

  • uWATER-PA (the uWATER-Pumping Assessment)

http://www.isws.illinois.edu/gws/sware/uwaterpa/

An extended uWATER package targeting the specific environmental issue of groundwater pumping impacts. The toolkit is an excellent alternative to initially assessing complex groundwater pumping impacts. A graphical user interface makes both data entry and interpretation of results intuitive to non-technical individuals.
