OpenNSPECT is the open-source version of the Nonpoint Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool that examines the relationship between land cover, nonpoint source pollution, and erosion. OpenNSPECT is a plug-in for the free, open-source geographic information system (GIS) software package MapWindow GIS. OpenNSPECT is designed for use with any watershed, provided the user has access to the necessary data. This user's manual provides a detailed description of the interfaces within OpenNSPECT and the data required to perform an analysis. The separate technical guide explains in more detail where the data that are distributed with OpenNSPECT were acquired and how the data were processed to be compatible with OpenNSPECT.
