Overview of MODFLOW-GUI

Example of a simple MODFLOW model created with MODFLOW GUI.

Example of a simple MODFLOW model created with MODFLOW GUI.

MODFLOW-GUI is a preprocessor and postprocessor graphical-user interface for preparing MODFLOW-96, MODFLOW-2000, MODFLOW-2005, MOC3D, MODPATH, and ZONEBDGT input data and viewing model output for use within Argus Open Numerical Environments (Argus ONE).

The Argus ONE interface only works with MODFLOW-96, MODFLOW-2000, and MODFLOW-2005 and not with earlier versions of MODFLOW.

MODFLOW-GUI supports the following packages: BAS5, BAS6, BCF5, BCF6, LPF, WEL5, RIV5, DRN5, GHB5, RCH5, EVT5, SOR5, SIP5, PCG2, DE4, STR1, HFB1, HFB6, FHB1, IBS1, RES1, TLK1, LAK3, GAG, ETS1, DRT1, LMG1, HYDMOD, OBS, HOB, GBOB, DROB, RVOB, ADOB, SEN, PES, CHD, ADV2, CHFB, HUF1, LMT6, MNW1, MNW2, DAFLOW, SUB, SFR2, GMG, UZF, SWT, MOC3D/GWT, MODPATH, ZONEBDGT, MT3DMS, SEAWAT version 4, and MF2K-GWM.

The following capabilities are NOT yet supported: GFD1.

MODFLOW-GUI requires use of the proprietary software, Argus ONE.  Information on this software and a free demonstration version of Argus ONE that allows limited use of MODFLOW-GUI may be obtained from Argus Interware, Inc.

MODFLOW-GUI Source Code for Microsoft Windows

The help system in ModflowGuiHelp.zip must be compiled with HelpScribble. Fortran source files in modflw96dll.zip and ReaArrDll.zip must be compiled with the Lahey LF90 compiler. The remaining files must be compiled with Borland Delphi 2006.

These components are required to compile MODFLOW GUI.
