SWAT Editor

Download SWAT Editor 2012.10.21 (1 Oct 2018). Remember to uninstall any previous versions before installing a new version.

SWAT Editor reads the project database generated by ArcSWAT or QSWAT, allowing the user to edit swat input files, execute SWAT run, perform sensitivity, auto-calibration and uncertainty analysis. This is a standalone program and does not require GIS, thus helping users of ArcSWAT and QSWAT to share their project with others that do not have GIS or much experience with GIS in general.
