Open Source Initiatives

Open-source software can offer significant benefits for Culmen's customers. By using open-source solutions, our clients share ownership and control over the source code, which they can then modify and adapt to their specific needs.


This approach provides flexibility and ensures that the software works precisely as required, rather than being constrained by off-the-shelf products.

Moreover, open-source software enables government agencies to continue developing and improving the software on their own, without being dependent on Culmen or any other vendor. If Culmen's relationship with the agency is terminated, the agency still retains full access to the source code, enabling them to take over the development process or collaborate with another vendor. This approach helps to minimize transition costs and complexities. At Culmen, we put our partner's interests first.


In addition, Culmen International encourages interested third parties to contribute to the open-source code base. By doing so, the company fosters a vibrant community of developers who can contribute new features, fix bugs, and improve overall quality. This approach helps to ensure that the software remains up-to-date and meets the evolving needs of the agency.


Overall, by leveraging open-source software, Culmen International's customers can enjoy greater flexibility, control, and cost-effectiveness in developing solutions for their specific needs. By encouraging collaboration and contributions from third-party developers, Culmen International helps to build a community of experts dedicated to improving the software over time.

BlueWave is a project that enables the easy transformation of datasets into common visualizations, such as graphs, pie charts, and bar charts, by simply dragging and dropping data. By making this software open source, Culmen International has made it possible for government agencies and other users to freely access and modify the code, ensuring that the software remains up-to-date and continues to meet their evolving needs. This approach helps to create a more collaborative and adaptable ecosystem for data visualization, ultimately benefiting the end users of the software.


BlueWave Supply Chain Module

One key module within BlueWave is the supply chain visualization module, which provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for building complex supply chain visualizations. With this module, users can quickly and easily create visual representations of their supply chains, cutting down on the time required to do so manually. Additionally, since BlueWave is open source, agencies and other users have the flexibility to modify the code to better suit their specific needs and requirements, further enhancing the value of the software. This approach ensures that the supply chain module within BlueWave is a powerful and efficient tool for government agencies and other users who need to analyze and visualize complex supply chains.

Node Graph Panel

This tool enables users to visualize complex node graphs that are commonly used in the analysis of unstructured data. The project can be used as a tool to take in relatively unknown dataset rows as JSON data and create a graph visualization with them. With its user-friendly interface, the Node Graph Panel offers an intuitive way to explore and analyze these intricate datasets. Additionally, the panel includes a search functionality that allows users to easily locate and filter nodes of interest.
