Visual MODFLOWBomber crew: usaaf for mac os. (VMOD) is a software program developed by Waterloo Hydrogeologic. Originally released in 1994, Visual MODFLOW was the first commercially available graphical interface for the open source groundwater modeling engine called MODFLOW. As of May 2012, a newer .NET version of the software was rebranded as Visual MODFLOW Flex. The program also combines proprietary extensions, such as MODFLOW-SURFACT, MT3DMS (mass-transport 3D multi-species) and a three-dimensional model explorer. Visual MODFLOW supports MODFLOW-2000, MODFLOW-2005, MODFLOW-NWT, MODFLOW-LGR, MODFLOW-SURFACT, and SEAWAT.
The software is used primarily by hydrogeologists to simulate groundwater flow and contaminant transport.
Discover how Visual MODFLOW Flex can help you build better, more accurate models in this introductory webinar presented by the Senior Product Champion for Si. We have a long history of data collection, monitoring, and reporting. With the passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), there is an increased need for local and state agencies and the public to easily access water data in order to make informed management decisions. Visual MODFLOW Flex is more than just a graphical user interface for MODFLOW groundwater simulations. Visual MODFLOW Flex brings together industry-standard codes for groundwater flow and contaminant transport, essential analysis and calibration tools, and stunning 3D visualization capabilities in a single, easy-to-use software environment.
The original version of Visual MODFLOW was first released in August 1994, and was developed for DOS by Nilson Guiguer, Thomas Franz and Bob Cleary. It was based on the USGSMODFLOW-88 and MODPATH codes, and resembled the FLOWPATH program that was also developed by Waterloo Hydrogeologic Inc. The first Windows based version was released in 1997 and the main programmers were Sergei Schmakov, Alexander Liftshits, and Sean Wilson. A .NET version that included non-grid-based, graphical conceptual modelling features was released in 2012.
On January 10, 2005, Waterloo Hydrogeologic was acquired by Schlumberger's Water Services Technology Group.
On May 1, 2012, Waterloo Hydrogeologic released its next generation of Visual MODFLOW called Visual MODFLOW Flex.
On March 13, 2015, Waterloo Hydrogeologic was acquired by Nova Metrix.
