RiverWISE User Roles
There are two distinct roles for using RiverWISE.
Model developer
RiverWare user who builds a river system model, develops a baseline scenario, and selects important input variables that could reasonably be modified in exploring alternative scenarios. This user is typically knowledgeable about RiverWare and the model exported to RiverWISE.
Using a utility in RiverWare, this user exports the model into a special WISE file (*.wise), which can be opened in RiverWISE.
The model developer communicates with CADSWES and stakeholders to facilitate stakeholder licenses.
Anyone interested in viewing results of the RiverWare model and exploring alternative scenarios. Stakeholders use RiverWISE to open the WISE file, view results, change values of the designated input variables, execute the simulation, and compare resulting output values. They can create several scenarios, save them, and send them to others.
