A GIS embedded hydrological model is being developed within the SID&GRID project (funded by Regione Toscana, Italy, under the POR FSE 2007-2013). The SID&GRID solution consists of a watershed model (built on public domain codes such as MODFLOW, VSF, LGR and newly developed ones) embedded in an open source GIS interface, applications and library, where all the input and output data are managed by means of DataBase Management System (DBMS). The result is a fully distributed, physically based hydrological model allowing to evaluate in space and time the hydrological variables and perform simulations for water resource management and planning.
