Abstract. An object-oriented modeling system (ACRU2000) was created to enable users to simulate the hydrological and environmental effects of various land uses in the Republic of South Africa. The model was designed in the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and implemented in the Java programming language. The ACRU2000 model has seven basic objects with three of these used by modelers as primary objects to simulate environmental events. By use of these three objects, components, processes and data, a detailed and versatile modeling system was developed to simulate spatial components and processes in one, two or three dimensions for both PC and Unix platforms. In addition, the ACRU2000 system was designed for easy expansion as new objects are created and linked into the The authors are solely responsible for the content of this technical presentation.
