Example of ListingAnalyst navigating a large MODFLOW Listing file.

ListingAnalyst version 1.1 is a Windows® program for viewing the main output file from MODFLOW-2005, MODFLOW-NWT, MODFLOW-LGR, MODFLOW-CFP, or MODFLOW-OWHM. It organizes and displays large files quickly without using excessive memory. The sections and subsections of the file are displayed in a tree-view control, which allows the user to navigate quickly to desired locations in the files. ListingAnalyst gathers error and warning messages scattered throughout the main output file and displays them all together in an error and a warning tab. A grid view displays tables in a readable format and allows the user to copy the table into a spreadsheet. The user can also search the file for terms of interest.
