What are people saying about Olwg and Insyn
"What a great platform. I tested out the Unit Converter (essential for innumerate geologists), as well as several of the Carbon Capture and Hydrogen Hydrolysis calculators. Super easy to use and a smart look and feel. I also really appreciated having the links to the plethora of external resources through the live data and mapping data portals. I also found the Essential Reading section very useful and informative. Well done Olwg!"
