This chapter demonstrates applications of personal computer graphics in Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) modelling. Graphics are effective means of bridging the gap between the information and its recipients. It is demonstrated that integration or interfacing of computer graphics in SWMM models, in addition to the traditional tabular output, significantly improves the efficiency of modelling tasks. The graphics provide the modeller with more efficient and cost effective analysis, planning, design, and management tools proposed technique requires developing graphical user interfaces (GUI) for SWMM. Twenty five GUI features are recommended from a user’s perspective. A software review of the available SWMM GUIs is provided. The advantages and limitations of various GUI techniques are identified and recommendations for future research and development are made from a user's perspective.
