Jenness, J.; Dooley, J.; Aguilar-Manjarrez, J.; Riva, C. 2007. African Water Resource Database. GIS-based tools for inland aquatic resource management. 2. Technical manual and workbook. CIFA Technical Paper. No. 33, Part 2. Rome, FAO. 308 p.
To display and analyse the AWRD archival data, the database also contains a large assortment of new custom applications and tools programmed to run under version 3 of the ArcView GIS software environment (ArcView 3.x). The AWRD tools won 1st and 2nd place in the Avenue category at the 2004 ESRI International User Conference.
These AWRD tools add broad functionality and ease of use to ArcView 3.x, and are comprised of 821 scripts, 63 dialogs, and over 53,000 lines of code. This extensive modification essentially adds an entirely self-contained GIS system on top of standard ArcView 3.x.
The AWRD tools are contained in DVD1 of this publication and are also available for download from this Web page. The latest version of the AWRD tools will always be posted on this Web page: AWRD tools
The AWRD tools are generic and can be applied to other regions or countries if the data required to use the tools are available (e.g. a watershed model).
