Processing:Pre and Post Processing
There are many pre and post processing tools available for CE-QUAL-W2. Below are just a few of the more common tools that you will find helpful when setting up a model and viewing its results.
One of the most difficult aspects of any CE-QUAL-W2 models is the generation of the input files, both geometry as well as the flow and meteorological data. Without some kind of pre-processor it is virtually impossible to set up and debug all of the necessary model files. The following tools provide functionality for pre-processing raw data to develop CE-QUAL-W2 input files.
Good graphical output of a CE-QUAL-W2 model is essential to calibrate a model and then convey results to interested stakeholders. The following tools provide post-processing functionality for CE-QUAL-W2
