Customized Views

Through customized views, the GLWMS can be changed to optimize its functions for your needs. Customization includes creating new functions and features to help accomplish your goals. Existing features can be added or removed to improve workflows.

New Analysis

New analysis components can be developed and offered as a new plug-in to help answer critical questions for your work. IWR works closely with customers to “co-create” these new plug-ins.
