Description

The MapWindow 3.0 Application is a free, extensible, programmable Geographic Information System (GIS) that can be used in many ways including: as an alternative, free desktop GIS, as a means of distributing data to others, and as a platform for developing and distributing custom spatial data analyses. MapWindow is a product of the Utah Water Research Laboratory's Environmental Management Research Center and is currently being applied in many of the ongoing research projects at the lab. One of these applications is the Watershed Information System (WIS). Using custom plug-ins to MapWindow, the WIS links spatial data including the locations of water quality and streamflow sampling locations with databases of streamflow and water quality data. Users can access and analyze their water quality and streamflow data by clicking on sampling locations on the map. A suite of data analysis tools are available, including statistical summaries and various plot types. These tools have been instrumental in the timely completion of deliverables on a number of water quality related projects.
