This manuscript presents an overview of the Analytic Element Method, and illustrates how this mathematical technique is ideally suited to utilization within a GIS geodatabase model. The Analytic Element Method contains a set of analytic elements that exactly satisfy the governing partial differential equation and represent flow associated with a point, line or polygon. Elements are superimposed to simulate local and regional flow within an infinite domain. A GIS geodatabase model is presented here, which organizes spatial data in a vector format that relates directly to analytic elements. Scripts have been developed to automate the creation of groundwater models from the GIS geodatabase using the computer model MLAEM (Multi-Layer Analytic Element Model). An example is presented to illustrate the efficacy of this approach.
