  1. ArcMap v 9.2
  2. Spatial Analyst extension for ArcMap v 9.2

ArcMap v 9.2 was used as the programming platform for the development of the application. The windows have been designed for the purposes of the user-machine interaction, in the frame of the operation of the application. The windows have been designed in the ArcMap's Visual Basic Editor. Further, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and ArcObjects were used to write the necessary code for the implementation of the algorithms. For the raster calculations, the functions provided by the Spatial Analyst extension of ArcMap v 9.2 were used. The manual is available as a Word document.
