The company first released FLOWPATH, which—at the time—was the first fully integrated graphical groundwater modelling software. In the fall of 1993, Waterloo Hydrogeologic became incorporated (changing their name) and started with the development of Visual MODFLOW. The company diversified into groundwater software training and consulting services, as it expanded.
