4.1 - Input File Development

Input files for the base CDSS datasets have been created using the CDSS Data Management Interfaces developed to extract and format data from HydroBase. New datasets can be developed 1) by revising one of the base datasets provided with the StateCU GUI, 2) interactively through the StateCU HydroBaseWizard, 3) by running the CDSS Data Management Interfaces (see Section 8.3), or 4) by building StateCU ASCII input files using the format provided in this section. Caution should be used when editing or creating the ASCII input files with a text editor, as StateCU is sensitive to format, and specifically does not recognize tabs. The StateCU GUI has full editing capabilities.
