14 January 15, 2003USDA Conesus Lake Project Runoff and Soil Moisture Modeling with SMR  Coded and Running in Lennon Hall Using Visual BASIC within ArcGIS 8.2  Complete Control of Code  Easy to Integrate Additional Environmental Modeling Concepts Private Function HM_NeighborFlow(sStorage As String, _ pInterflowRaster As IRaster, ierr As Integer) As Boolean ' ' The storage is adjusted for the amount leaving, the interflow and the amount ' entering from neighbor cells. The maps north, northeast, east, southeast, ' south, southwest, west and northwest represent the fraction of flow heading ' in 'that' direction from the current cell. Therefore to find the amount ' entering the current cell one needs to look at the neighbor cells and the ' corresponding maps which point to the current cell. For example, if the ' current cell is (i,j) and one looks to the north (i-1,j) one would use the ' south map to get the fraction of flow since the current cell is south of its ' north neighbor. ' ' | cell: (i-1, j-1) | cell: (i-1, j) | cell: (i-1, j+1) | ' | map: southeast | map: south | map: southwest | ' ' | cell: (i-1, j) | cell: (i, j) | cell: (i+1, j+1) | ' | map: east | map: none | map: west | ' ' | cell: (i+1, j-1) | cell: (i+1, j) | cell: (i+1, j+1) | ' | map: northeast | map: north | map: northwest | '
