The aim of this thesis was to create a computer program (called "Agromet"), realised with Visual Basic, that enables the user to handle soil and water regime data quicker and more secure. Measurements of the agro-hydrological station in Groß-Enzersdorf, near to Vienna, Austria, served as data source. These data are saved in various files, containing measurements of certain periods. It was required to maintain this file structure therefore a data base solution was out of question. Since there is the possibility in the first part of the program to determinate and select different projects, Agromet can be used for other field stations as well. The transformation of voltage values to - for example - soil temperature or atmospheric pressure is utilized by calibration files, which contain the relevant data obtained by calibration of measuring instruments. After transformation of data, statistical evaluations can be made and the results can be saved. For the user it is possible to work with the results in other programs. Emphasize was paid to simple and clear usage of Agromet, which was achieved by means of an online assistance and inserted notes. Additionally the document contains a detailed guidance, in which the structure of all necessary files is clearly described. A CD with the installation version and the source code of Agromet as well as data of January to March 1999 (measured and transformed) of the station Groß- Enzersdorf is attached.
