Broomfield, Colorado USA, October 18, 2006 - MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced the release of NetVIEW, state-of-the-art geospatial information viewing, distribution, and management software that facilitates rapid deployment and analysis of GIS data and modeling results in Google Earth. Initially introduced for InfoWater, the industry's premier and most comprehensive ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) water distribution modeling and optimization software, NetVIEW delivers the unprecedented ability to seamlessly combine mapping, GIS and modeling data with Google Earth in an integrated environment via an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. The information displayed can then be interactively queried online.
Built using Component and XML technologies, NetVIEW gives water utilities fast access to mission-critical GIS and modeling information as well as extensive data reporting capabilities critical to supporting water distribution management activities. The groundbreaking application enables faster, better-informed decisions by overlaying GIS and network modeling results on top of precision satellite imagery. This information can be shared across departments for a complete, accurate picture of the utility's enterprise data and more efficient asset management and business planning.
NetVIEW reflects MWH Soft's long-standing leadership in the water industry and its continuing commitment to delivering pioneering web-enabled spatial technology to improve the operation, maintenance, protection, and management of the nation's water supply. Loaded with comprehensive modeling functionality, map generation and spatial data analysis capabilities, it allows multiple water utility departments maximum interaction with spatial photography, GIS data and critical modeling results.
Users can display their water distribution network models and analyze, share, and view detailed hydraulic (e.g., flow and pressure) and water quality (e.g., chlorine and water age) modeling results from any number of modeling scenarios directly in Google Earth. Armed with detailed information on trends or problem areas, they can collaborate in improving system efficiency and performance and protecting public health. These enhanced capabilities create significant advantages for the enterprise-including greater operational efficiency and emergency preparedness, better planning and more informed decision making, increased infrastructure protection and reliability, improved public notification, and stronger customer ties.
Early reaction to NetVIEW has been highly enthusiastic. Werner de Schaetzen, Ph.D, P.Eng., Director of GeoAdvice Inc., in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and a water and sewer systems modeling expert, noted, "NetVIEW continues to build on MWH Soft's outstanding reputation for providing customers with best-of-breed geospatial modeling applications backed by impeccable technical support. The company's move to develop innovative products with Google Earth is an impressive step, one that builds on the MWH Soft reputation for setting new standards of modeling excellence. NetVIEW is ideally suited to quickly show users the big picture. Armed with an integrated view of their drinking water infrastructure performance, they can act to improve productivity and bottom line results by managing their systems more efficiently."
"NetVIEW has the unique ability to bring together advanced network modeling with Google Earth's reach and ease of use on a business process level - making it the logical choice for water utilities worldwide," said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. "Its instant web access and high-level integration and scalability allow utilities to broaden the reach of their spatial and modeling information. This expanded view gives them the critical knowledge they need to better secure, manage, protect and operate their hydraulic infrastructure systems. MWH Soft is very proud to offer this useful, utility-strength product to our InfoWater ArcGIS-based customers."
