Groundwater Vistas (GV) is a sophisticated Windows graphical user interface
for 3-D groundwater flow & transport modeling . GV couples a powerful model
design system with comprehensive graphical analysis tools. Developed by the
author of ModelCadTM, GV is a model-independent graphical design system for
MODFLOW MODPATH (both steady-state and transient versions), MT3DMS,
MODFLOWT, MODFLOW-SURFACT, MODFLOW2000, GFLOW, RT3D, PATH3D, SEAWAT and PEST, the model-independent calibration software. The combination of PEST
and GV’s automatic sensitivity analysis make GV a powerful calibration tool.

The advanced version of Groundwater Vistas provides the ideal groundwater
risk assessment tool. Groundwater Vistas is the first modeling environment
for the
MODFLOW family of models that allows for the quantification of uncertainty. Stochastic (Advanced) Groundwater Vistas includes, Monte Carlo versions of
MODFLOW, MODPATH and MT3D, Geostatistical Simulators SWIFT support advanced
output options and more.

GV displays the model design in both plan and cross-sectional views using a
split window (both views are visible at the same time). Model results are
presented using contours, shaded contours, velocity vectors, and detailed
analysis of mass balance.
