What is Urban Developer?

Urban Developer is an integrated urban water cycle modelling (IUWM) designed as a stand-alone tool to meet the needs of water professionals facing the challenges of integrated water cycle service planning and assessment arising from the ever-increasing pressures on Australia’s water resources.

Urban Developer is now available as a plugin for eWater Source, adapted to allow urban water cycle modelling to be integrated within Source's whole-of-river-system modelling framework.

Urban Developer allows exploration of urban water systems in a level of detail and with a degree of flexibility not offered by existing integrated models.
