WEISS is programmed in C++ as a stand-alone application for the PC platform. It features a graphical user-friendly interface that enables an application to be built from scratch for a new area, using all available functions. The system has built-in GIS functionality and stores its data in an MS Access database. WEISS comes as a software product ready to receive all the base data and start the analyses. A one-day course suffices to know how to set up a new application, use it and manage it.
VITO can be contracted to assist in the collection, manipulation and integration of all the necessary data as well as the development of scenarios, analysis and interpretation as well as the selection of promising cases for more in depth analysis and action. Similarly, VITO can provide for customization of the WEISS application by incorporating tools, algorithms and models already used by the client.
