Agricultural Non-Point Source (AGNPS) Water Quality Modeling in a GIS Environment
Stephen George Carpenter
This thesis project outlines the development and implementation of a complex GIS
project in a government agency. The objective of the project was to integrate a public
domain GIS package (GRASS) with a commercial structured query language database in
order to undertake Agricultural Non-Point Source (AGNPS) water quality modeling.
Three general areas of GIS technology were investigated consisting of technical issues
involved in linking GIS; the model; database development; and a discussion of system
performance from an institutional perspective.
