A set of WISER tutorial videos has been released to introduce and demonstrate WISER functionality.  The videos can also be found in the training section of the NLM YouTube Channel. They include a dive into the information provided by a known substance as well as a demonstration of WISER's protective distance mapping feature. Feedback and comments are appreciated as we strive to make these tutorials better for the first responders who rely on WISER to do their job.

Recent Activity - What Else Has Happened?

WISER 5.0 was released this past October. Take a look at the new features added to WISER in the 5.0 release:
