WaterToolbox Tool - integrating R code into ArcToolbox using Python
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Nicole Nadorozny, Weiping Zeng
A scientifically-based statistical protocol for conducting baseline assessments in river indicators was developed for Saskatchewan Watersheds. The empirical assessments quantify the state of rivers and indicate if conditions have stayed the same, improved or deteriorated. A WaterToolbox tool for ESRI ArcGIS was developed to standardize the statistical protocols for system application. The tool accesses data within ArcGIS and runs R scripts through a Python interface within the ArcGIS platform.
