Online Tools Overview
The IWR develops interactive tools that address real world problems such as nonpoint source pollution and water availability. Our suite of decision support, watershed analysis and networking tools transform complex modeling, mapping and assessment into accessible and freely available online applications.
Tool development at the IWR stems from collaborative partnerships and innovative research. We design our tools in close coordination with stakeholders and combine leading edge software development, modeling expertise and comprehensive training to provide holistic, practical and effective systems.
IWR has provided critical decision support tools that are being used to inform on-the-ground protection and restoration actions that are improving Michigan’s water resources for current and future generations.
