Based on a Geographical Information System (GIS), a hydrological model was developed that calculates the water balance in a hydrological basin. The system uses hydrometeorological data as input and produces spatial data of runoff, evaportranspiration and water storage to various ground levels, for output. The model development is based on the object oriented programming language that is incorporated in the GIS environment. The model was applied to Acheloos River basin, upstream of the Kremasta Dam. The basin was divided into cells of 4 square kilometers each and the inputs and outputs of the model were grids with the same cell size. Measured river discharges were used for the calibration and verification of the model.
