In version 4.0, the MGB Model has been integrated to Quantum GIS software for its versions 2.14 and 2.18.
Version 4.1 of MGB updates the “ANA Data Aqcuisition” tool, which automatically downloads data from the Brazilian Water Agency (“Agência Nacional de Águas”). Also, it updates the format for daily climate input data, it brings to the graphical user interface the option to change the “alpha” parameter (related to Courant’s condition in the inercial module), it updates the evapotranspiration routine, and it fixes some internal bugs.
It is likely that the parameters values from previous versions of the model might change for simulation with MGB 4.1.
Current versions of user’s guides and plugins are available as follows
MGB model requires Quantum GIS in 64 bits version.
MGB model is a plugin which is added to Quantum GIS after the software has been installed in the computer. To install the MGB plugin in Quantum GIS, download the plugin in the provided link, then unpack the plugin file, so you should have a folder named “MGB”, and a sub-folder with all files related to MGB.
Afterwards, go to “\plugins” directory inside the folder in which Quantum GIS has been intalled. Usually, it is installed in the path: “C:\Users\.qgis\python”. Then, go to “plugins” folder. In case this folder doesn’t exist, you should create it.
Finally, paste the unpacked “MGB” folder inside the “plugins” folder. Same procedure for “IPH-hydrotools” folder.
