MWH Soft Releases First-of-its-Kind NetView Pro for Google Earth™, Driving Next-Generation Geospatial Network Modeling


Enhanced Google Earth Enterprise Modeling Solution Puts Expert Presentation Methods in Every User’s Hands

Broomfield, Colorado USA, December 6, 2006 — MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced the release of NetView Pro, a 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.

By overlaying GIS and network modeling results on top of precision satellite imagery, the groundbreaking application provides an unprecedentedly complete, accurate picture of the utility’s enterprise data. The information produced can be shared across departments, facilitating faster, better-informed decision making and more efficient asset management and business planning.

In response to customer feedback, NetView Pro introduces powerful contouring and network annotation capabilities. These advancements equip water utilities with a rich, web-enabled graphical analysis and presentation tool supporting improved water supply and distribution system management, operation, protection, and regulatory compliance. The new release underscores MWH Soft’s unwavering commitment to helping customers meet critical business and environmental challenges by giving them the trusted tools they need to innovate, increase productivity and performance, optimize processes and efficiency, and deliver reliable, quality solutions more quickly and cost-effectively.

Initially introduced for InfoWater, the industry’s premier and most comprehensive ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) water distribution modeling and optimization software, NetView Pro is the first software to seamlessly combine mapping, GIS and modeling data with Google Earth in an integrated environment via an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. Loaded with comprehensive modeling functionality, map generation, and spatial data analysis capabilities, it enables multiple water utility departments to interact to the fullest with spatial photography, GIS data and critical modeling results. The information generated can then be interactively queried online. NetView Pro allows a wide range of users to employ a common spatial data source for their various business processes, regardless of whether or not they have engineering or GIS expertise. It also enables the production of stunning presentations to increase audience impact.

The software enables users to 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. They can also, for the first time, easily visualize and map input data and modeling results with advanced network annotations, and superimpose contour maps directly on the system layout to streamline quality map production. Armed with detailed information on trends and/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, more informed decision making, increased infrastructure protection and reliability, improved public notification, and stronger customer ties.

“In the few weeks since NetView was introduced, feedback has been continuous and positive,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “The new professional version is loaded with unmatched features and functionality that will critically assist water utilities around the world in improving the operation and management of their systems, mitigating a range of risks, protecting public health, ensuring a safe, reliable potable water supply, and giving their customers added security and peace of mind. It represents a quantum leap in the art and science of network modeling, and it is poised to dominate the water modeling industry for the next decade and beyond. With this release, we continue to break down barriers in the modeling community in the interest of getting the job done.”
