Online Tools Developed by the MWRPP

/ Hydrosumm: This tool computes hydrologic indices and other summary data from hydrologic time series data. link to tool

/ Baseflow Estimator: This tool used to calculate baseflow targets for any sub-catchment in the Melbourne Water region.
link to tool

/ CatchmentExtractor: This tool extracts the (hydrologically-delineated) boundary for any stream reach in the MW region, and enables users to save this boundary polygon as an ESRI shapefile or MapInfo file. link to tool

/ BugModels: This is a site-level macroinvertebrate analysis and reporting tool that allows users to calculate waterway condition at a site based on the observed macroinvertebrate assemblage, and also to interactively explore predicted changes to macroinvertebrate assemblages (at a site) under different forest cover or urban stormwater impact scenarios. link to tool.

/ LUMaR Tool: This tool allows users to input raw macroinvertebrate data to calculate LUMaR (macroinvertebrate-based stream condition) scores. link to tool
