The development of numerical codes, as well as pre- and post-processors to support these codes, has made the discipline of groundwater modeling increasingly more automated and efficient. The value of such modeling is reliant on the site-specific data used to build and calibrate the models. The integration of EarthSoft’s EQuIS Geology and any of several popular modeling environments results in a data management and analysis system that is more complete than the modeling system alone. Water level data are easily exported to calibration files for the appropriate modeling system. Coupled with EQuIS and other analysis applications, ArcView GIS can be used as an easy, graphical environment with which to facilitate the groundwater model calibrating process.
