© Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015. All rights reserved.The Tyndall Coastal Simulator comprised a wide range of modelling activities across disciplines and institutions. This activity generated diverse results, described in the preceding chapters. Organising this body of knowledge into a coherent and accessible form for use by stakeholders and for additional ad hoc analyses emerged as a substantial task in its own right. This chapter reflects upon the process of designing, developing and demonstrating a user-orientated 'interface' - a geographic information system (GIS) coupled with coastal models - allowing users to explore results of the research and interactions between them (Mokrech et al. 2011 ). The process of integration was led by the project team, with input from a group of external stakeholders who were given opportunities to learn about and test the interface. This interaction helped to give practical context in the identification of broad questions at the beginning of the project and the detailed questions that emerged during the research process - particularly around integration and user potential.
