The purpose of this report is to document the procedures followed to ensure that AGWA conforms to the design objectives and specifications, and that it correctly performs the incorporated functions. These procedures include parameterization of the hydrologic models, the application of coding standards and practices for the development of the GIS-based interface, testing of its functional design, and evaluation of its performance characteristics. AGWA is a graphical user interface for the KINEROS and SWAT models developed as an ArcView extension. The main purpose of the AGWA tools is to assist in the assessment of the effects of land cover effects of land cover change and land use on watershed response across multiple scales.
