RAPIDpy is a python interface for RAPID that assists to prepare inputs, runs the RAPID program, and provides post-processing utilities. More information about installation and the input parameters for RAPID can be found at http://rapid-hub.org.
The source code for RAPID is located at https://github.com/c-h-david/rapid/.
- The development of RAPIDpy was funded by ERDC.
- The pre-processing GIS tools and the inflow tools in RAPIDpy are based on the ESRI RAPID Toolbox (https://github.com/Esri/python-toolbox-for-rapid).
