a) it is not required to input land use data to your model. The land use data allow more representative variability in other parameters--like runoff, infiltration, ET, etc.
b) adding the land use data as a GIS (vector) layer would be only for display purposes. What WEAP would want to know is how many acres/hectares belong to each land use class. These areas should be calculated in GIS and then input into WEAP.
