    E. ASSESSMENT OF SYSTEM

    EXAM AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

    1. What types of standards would be useful in interfacing packages such as AGNPS and ERDAS? Who should develop them and how should they be promulgated?

    2. Discuss the role of spatial resolution in the Big Darby Creek study and its effects on the results. What arguments might have been used to justify a 40 acre cell?

    3. Why was a raster data model used in this study rather than a vector data model?

    4. The results quoted in this unit were based on counts of raster cells. Discuss the issue of accuracy in the Big Darby Creek study, and its implications for implementation of the study's results.
