Green Infrastructure Flexible Model (GIFMod)
Type(s) of Tool
Country of Origin
The Green Infrastructure Flexible Model (GIFMod) is an open-source computer-based modelling tool to evaluate the performance of urban stormwater and agricultural green infrastructure practices that aim to reduce the volume of stormwater runoff entering sewers or receiving streams and to improve water quality. GIFMod allows users to build conceptual models of green infrastructure practices to predict their hydraulic and water quality performance under given weather scenarios. It also allows for interpreting field and lab data via deterministic and probabilistic inverse modelling.
GIFMod allows users to build conceptual models of different stormwater and green infrastructure practices under given weather conditions and to test hypothesis and evaluate the significance of various processes potentially affecting their performance.
