User Environment

CEDAS uses the popular visual development environment employed by mainline products of Microsoft. CEDAS user interface consists of an integrated set of windows, tools, menus, toolbars, and directories that allow the user to create, test, analyze, and refine the application in one place. The interface uses two major windows for workspaces that are fully adjustable. The left window tracks files associated with an application session. This window contains multiple tabbed pages organized by functionality. Each page contains a data tree allowing the user to organize data based on user-defined groups. The right window is the application workspace where data input files are developed, data resources are queried for import, grids are generated, results displayed and plotted, and decisions are made for saving and/or printing
