SOFTWARE SUITE DEVELOPMENT 7.1 General The acquisition of suite of test pumping interpretation and dnalysis software is required to provide both on-site management of the testing programme in progress and to facilitate direct and complete analysis of data for desktop analysis. Two levels of analysis are required (i) Afield anal vsis suite which should provide basic parameter (transmissivity and storativity) estimation and methods to enable assessment of bore developmental progress with support in terms of tabular and graphical output to screen and printer. (ii) A desktop analysis suite "Jhich should provide type curve overlay analysis and comprehensi ve parameter analysis (leakage coefficient, unconfined aquifer analysis, partial penetration correction etc.) as "Jell as all of the above. The logger- interrogation and downloading programmes are provided by the respective manufacturers. Development of the 'DATMAN and LOGIN' package (Reference 5; see section 5.2) was required to "link" the variable logger output formats and the "standard" input required by analysis software. 7.2 A.vailable 80ftware The range of software currently available to the organisation include several public domain programme developed by IGvJMC, and purchased software namely GWAP, SWIM, 1HIP, and PTEST (References 1,2,7,10,12,14,15,16, and 17). Research and documentation of the available software was conducted under a consultancy with The Australian Centre for Tropical Fresh,vater Research (Reference 4).
