Water Technology in partnership with our Dutch colleagues HydroLogic, are proud to announce that we have begun the first phase of an exciting project part funded by the European Space Agency. The project will develop a Rainfall and Flood Report Generator. This will be powered by smart applications, providing access to new and improved rainfall products that can analyse and report on the historic record and look to the future with forecasts.
The rainfall products will provide a National coverage and be comprised of the best rainfall product available, be that weather station, radar, satellite or crowd sourced data. This will be made possible through the HydroNET framework, which allows rapid connections to many different databases housed within different organisations, facilitating easy collaboration and data sharing.
Smart applications will enrich the data, turning it into valuable information. With easy access this information is turned into knowledge, leading to intelligent and efficient decision making.
Through our early user requirement workshops there has been clear interest and identified need for this product in the Australian water industry. We will be consulting further with industry water managers over the coming weeks. This will then shape the project and the priority objectives will be determined. We are genuinely excited by the opportunity this project provides, we believe it can make a real difference within the industry.
