What are FIM and FIM Portal?
FIM Portal is the graphical user interface for running FIM models. It walks users through the process of creating FIM workflows, running them, and monitoring their progress. It also includes tools for diff'ing FIM workflows and FIM runs, easily viewing log files, and viewing output files in formats such as GRIB, NetCDF, and .png.
FIM Portal runs on any system supporting Java 1.5 or later (like Windows, Mac, Linux) and requires that FIM be previously installed. It includes an internal workflow manager (for launching and monitoring jobs) and also supports GSD's WFM workflow manager, a robust and powerful external workflow manager used by members of the FIM development group.
