Abstract: In an effort to improve the efficiency of the hydrologic modeling activities of the Maryland State Highway Administration (MSHA), a cooperative project between MSHA, the Federal Highway Administration and the University of Maryland has been initiated. Phase I of the project, involving a three county area, was used for systems development, testing and personnel training. The workstation and communication software for linking to a supporting VAX or mainframe computer is in place. Phase II, which calls for developing the data set for the entire State and using a dedicated minicomputer for mass storage and computational support, will require approximately 30 months to complete. The present paper describes the operations of the desk-top intelligent workstation.
