MTRI has developed numerous decision support systems (DSS) as web applications that incorporate near real-time data, custom remote sensing algorithms and imagery, and custom-developed data visualizations in support of various use cases. The systems support a range of themes including Great Lakes water quality, transportation, fire emissions, geohazards, and socioeconomics.
For each Michigan State Park located on a Great Lake, a DNC Hazard Map was created based on an analysis of high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery compiled from several sources. The results of this effort are shared in the form of a web map to support public safety outreach efforts to educate Michigan beach users about this common coastal natural hazard.

This Look-Up Table summarizes the Mondrian model's recommended course of action to manage Phragmites under many different wetland conditions.
This Dashboard was developed as a resource for beach managers, emergency response agencies, local media, policymakers, and the public to better understand the hazard of Great Lakes currents.
