    SWAT-MODFLOW Version 3 hydrological modeling software development demands good source code comprehension and navigation tools. This article introduces a thorough Source Code Indexer (SCI) to help comprehend SWAT-MODFLOW Version 3 source code. The SCI uses advanced software visualization techniques to build code element dependency graphs, inheritance diagrams, and cooperation diagrams, which are hyperlinked for easy navigation. The SCI retrieves class, method, variable, and function calls from SWAT-MODFLOW Version 3 source code. The SCI creates extremely informative and interactive dependency graphs to show how code pieces are connected. Readers can rapidly access code components and understand their dependencies using hyperlinked items in these graphs: SCI inheritance diagrams show the codebase's class hierarchy. These hyperlinked diagrams let readers easily study class relationships and functionalities. SCI collaboration diagrams depict runtime message passing and method invocations. These diagrams' hyperlinked sections make code execution easy to follow. SCI efficacy depends on knowing what to search for in the source code. Users may rapidly find and understand code components and dependencies using hyperlinked items. In conclusion, SWAT-MODFLOW Version 3 developers can visualize code with the Source Code Indexer. The SCI helps developers understand complex code architectures and find specific code pieces by linking dependency graphs, inheritance diagrams, and collaboration diagrams. This useful tool enhances hydrological modeling research and development and facilitates SWAT-MODFLOW Version 3 source code study.
