Why is it down?

The Point Query Tool was developed many years ago and didn’t survive the migration to the cloud last year due to incompatibility with the new system. These things happen, unfortunately.

We recognize that the tool is still very valuable to many doing important work and are developing a new solution.

What’s next for the tool?

GLOS is developing a new information technology platform. Due to the importance of the PQT functionality, the team will be focusing early development effort on making model data available.
