Description Visual Groundwater is the one 3-D visualization software package that every groundwater and environmental professional should have for delivering high-quality three-dimensional representations of subsurface characterization data and groundwater modeling results. In the past there has been much confusion and uncertainty associated with the interpretation and reporting of subsurface characterization data and groundwater modeling results. A great deal of this is attributed to the lack of a suitable medium to properly represent and display the complex spatial and temporal information. However, the rapid advances in computational speed and storage capacity of the PC hardware has opened up a new frontier in 3-D visualization and its application in the environmental industry. Visual Groundwater has pioneered this new frontier by combining state-of-the-art graphical tools for 3-D visualization and animation with an intuitive graphical interface that lets you easily create high-impact 3-D representations of complex site characterization data and modeling results in minutes! Visual Groundwater has been designed to meet the specialized needs of practicing groundwater professionals and environmental engineers. The intuitive graphical interface provides interactive visualization capabilities for manipulating and rotating multiple three-dimensional data sets such as: Borehole logs and environmental sampling data; Cross-sections along any plane or orientation through the site; Groundwater flow, pathlines and contaminant transport modeling results. Visual Groundwater utilizes a proprietary data storage format that allows the user to have direct interaction with the graphical display while the objects are rotating and animating. This approach eliminates the repetitive steps needed to 'build' the animation files before you can even see the results (in fact, many 'comparable' package do not even support animation of time-varying data). Visual Groundwater also comes with a data converter which automatically converts common data storage formats into 3-D Visual Groundwater input data files. The file formats supported by the Visual Groundwater Data Converter include: Visual MODFLOW Project Files (for flow and transport modeling); Random X, Y, Z data files; Borehole investigation data.
