Summary
Abstract: HidroSIG is a Geographical Information System (GIS) with special tools that
will allow you to make estimations and analysis of hydrological, climatic and
geomorphological variables.

Developed at Postgrado in Aprovechamiento de Recursos Hidraulicos (Universidad
Nacional de Colombia, Facultad de Minas, Medellin), HIDROSIG is a tool that
constitutes an important input to be used in multiple sectors of the social,
economic and environmental planning, with base in the supply of the water
resource.

Access Constraints
In order to download the version of HIDROSIG and Atlas Hidrológico de Colombia
to your PC, you must have at least 350 MB available in your hard disc and
between 128 and 256 MB of RAM memory for its right performance.

If your operative system is not windows, you must download the JAVA virtual
machine and JAVA 3D. In this page you will find the Linux installers, if you
use another operative system you can download it from the Sun Java page (
http://java.sun.com ).
