The educational tool DITPRO has been created to simulate problems of direct soil tomography problem. The introduction of data is very easy for the students, because the software has an interactive grid window. Moreover, provides to the users an easy handling and powerful calculations. Its graphical environment allows access to a graphical representation of potential functions. The software presents, like commercial softwares, the most common options (e.g., save and open cases files and representations, etc.). Although the program is created to be used in several fields, among others as investigation tool, the mainly use of interest for this work is as educational tool. Another important use is as low-cost laboratory practices. The student has the possiblity to obtain system information of the Spice code text file, whose rules are well known by students with knowledge of electrical circuit theory. The student must to design and implement several sceneries and explain it to check his/her understanding of the problem.
