What's Next?


Over time we will continue to develop PEWI to improve features, design, and usability. In the future, we envision expanding PEWI even further—potentially with more land covers and indicators, additional complexities, other land-use contexts, and more interactive graphics. Our vision includes incorporating ecosystem services indicators, such as nutritional value of food produced and energy produced from biomass. The possibilities for PEWI are endless, and feedback from PEWI users will be an instrumental part of future development efforts.

Because we hope to incorporate feedback from other users, we have made PEWI open source. You can also contact us with ideas or feedback at pewi@iastate.edu.
