Software SWAT Check

SWAT Check 1.2.0.9 was released January 11, 2017.

This release is for SWAT 2009 rev. 525 through SWAT 2012 rev. 664 and ArcSWAT 2012. For ArcSWAT 2009, see previous versions.

What's New in 1.2

Version 1.2 of SWAT Check uses SQLite to store SWAT output data, which allows SWAT Check to be run on large models with daily output over long simulation periods. Previously, these models would require too much data to be stored in memory and SWAT Check would crash.

Please contact eco.web@tamu.edu if you have trouble with this new release. For immediate needs, use the previous version 1.1.15. Any feedback on using SWAT Check 1.2.0 on large, daily models is appreciated.

Requirements: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5

SWAT Check reads model output from a SWAT project and performs many simple checks to identify potential model problems.

The intended purpose of this program is to identify model problems early in the modeling process.  Hidden model problems often result in the need to recalibrate or regenerate a model, resulting in an avoidable waste of time.  This program is designed to compare a variety of SWAT outputs to nominal ranges based on the judgment of model developers.  A warning does not necessarily indicate a problem; the purpose is to bring attention to unusual predictions.  This software also provides a visual representation of various model outputs to aid novice users.
