The module’s collection of user tools allows you to seamlessly import and export facility data for a range of source types including stacks, nonroad and onroad sources, tanks, and other specialty sources. Emissions calculation tools including U.S. EPA AP-42 allow you to generate emission values for individual sources or in batch calculations. AQMIS supports the inclusion of unlimited pollutants and emission sources as well as the ability for users to easily create custom emissions calculators.
The AQMIS Ambient Air Monitoring module lets users easily import, export, and organize their ambient air monitoring data. Data may be imported directly through templates, or through continuous processes in near-real-time.

A collection of customizable charts, graphs and tables illustrate trends in the monitoring data, identify exceedances, flag issues in data quality (such as missing or out-of-range data), and provide other valuable information. Observed monitor data may be compared with air dispersion model results to support validating both model results, and instrument performance and siting.
The AQMIS Air Dispersion Modeling Module allows you to conduct air dispersion modeling using your source and emissions data. AQMIS supports a collection of popular and regulatory air dispersion models including AERMOD, CALPUFF, SCICHEM, WRF-CHEM, CMAQ, and CAMx. Model runs are executed within the AQMIS solution and do not require external connection to additional modeling software. Using high performance computing processes, models that include hundreds of sources can be run in minutes instead of days, allowing easy comparisons between scenarios and evaluation of impacts over wide areas.

Historical meteorological data in WRF or MM5 format are immediately available for model runs over specific time periods.

AQMIS allows users to configure all required model inputs such as release points, buildings, sensitive receptors, and receptor grids. Most inputs may be entered manually or uploaded from spreadsheets or specified file formats using step-by-step guided wizards. Results may be compared to air quality standards, presented in reports, and displayed visually on the map.
The AQMIS Water Quality module includes all the capabilities necessary for you to implement water quality monitoring and reporting including water and wastewater programs.

The AQMIS Solid Waste module streamlines the waste management process to allow you to ensure compliance with hazardous waste regulations that govern end-to-end waste generation, handling, transportation, storage, and disposal. The solution’s robust features and capabilities enable companies and regulators to manage and reduce waste, ensure regulatory compliance, and improve their environmental performance.

The AQMIS waste profiling capabilities serve as the central online location for managing and monitoring waste profiles. Regulated entities can securely fill out and submit profiles online, saving time, money, and administrative headaches.

Track your waste processes from start to finish and quickly identify bottlenecks in the process to improve system efficiencies. Dashboards allow generators, transporters, service brokers and waste facilities to easily visualize and track all waste in transit from a single view.
AQMIS can provide you detailed forecasts of expected air quality conditions. AQMIS generates its own Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) meteorological data that allows accurate 24 hr forecasts that can be used in CALPUFF or SCICHEM models to show expected plume dispersion and hotspot concentrations.

AQMIS also provides the first commercially available artificial intelligence system used to forecast air quality based on historical, real-time and forecast meteorology combined with measured pollutant concentrations at ambient air monitoring stations.

The system is trained using historical data sets. As the amount and quality of available data increases, the neural net learns and adapts its forecasts to become more accurate in subsequent forecasting. The forecast conditions are immediately available on the same dashboards and data screens used for other purposes in AQMIS.
The AQMIS Air Quality Index (AQI) is used by government agencies to communicate to the public how polluted the air currently is or how polluted it is forecast to become. AQMIS reads real-time or near-real-time data to calculate the AQI for current conditions and uses artificial intelligence capabilities to forecast expected near-term AQI values.

AQMIS employs significant functionality to inform the public about historical, current, and forecast AQI. Stations where the AQI is calculated are presented within the GIS/mapping, and AQI data is found in searchable dashboards and an array of data analysis tools.
AQMIS fully implements the U.S. EPA Human Health Risk Assessment Protocol (HHRAP) which defines methodologies for conducting human health risk assessments including cancer and non-cancer health effects. AQMIS users are able to run risk analysis cases for desired locations and view results visually within the GIS/mapping display.

AQMIS also supports more specific risk requirements and criteria such as prioritization of facilities for risk assessments; for example, following prioritization guidance used in the state of California.
AQMIS allows you to visualize project data in a geospatial environment using our proprietary GIS and mapping module. Since GIS tools are included with the software, you don’t need to purchase third-party GIS utilities in addition to AQMIS – although you can connect with popular third-party tools if you have them. The AQMIS GIS/Mapping tool is fully compatible with ESRI products and can export generated maps in SHP format.

The GIS/Mapping module provides satellite imagery for your project locations, overlaid by your geospatial data where you have full control over the layers and objects displayed. An array of data can be displayed on your map, ranging from facilities and release points to the air quality index and air dispersion modeling contours.
The extensive Permitting and Compliance module in AQMIS provides you with the tools you need to manage your permitting and compliance requirements for large numbers of users and facilities. The system is designed to provide all the tools, forms, reports and automation necessary to streamline the collection of permitting and compliance data from all sources.

AQMIS can be used to track the application and development of permits, issue permits to facilities, monitor stack testing and related activities, handle complaints and exceedances, and many other tasks; all of this is accomplished within a single application.

The AQMIS Calendar and Ticketing Module supports all your project management and scheduling needs. Users can manually create system tickets to track progress and set due dates for specific tasks. Take advantage of built-in functions to automatically generate and assign a customizable set of tickets for tasks when wizards or other tools are executed, triggering the requirement for the next set of defined activities.

The calendar and its associated screens allow you to see an up-to-date view of tasks which are pending, in progress, or overdue, as well as who is responsible for the completion of each task.
The AQMIS Reporting module provides a complete internal reporting system that requires no third-party system. The Reporting module allows you to prepare products with advanced options ranging from professionally formatted standard reports to fully customizable ad-hoc reporting. Report types include textual and graphical reports, tabular summaries, as well as GIS-based mapping and data visualization capabilities. Data summaries can be customized using numerous queries and reporting tools to summarize results across varying levels of granularity, and all reports are fully searchable.
