HydroNET – Radar rainfall data, ensemble forecast data and smart tools for improved rainfall information
Brian Jackson from Water Technology will be presenting HydroNET RainWatch at the upcoming Irrigation 2018 Conference. His conference abstract is featured below.
HydroNET RainWatch – radar rainfall data and smart tools:
Improved observed and forecasted rainfall data is one of, if not the most, important aspect in understanding, planning for, designing solutions to, managing, operating, maintaining and evaluating farming activities affected by rain. A good understanding of the location, timing, duration and intensity of precipitation is vitally important. HydroNET RainWatch uniquely provides near real-time and historic calibrated, gauge blended radar rainfall data, providing you with the equivalent of 1 rain gauge every kilometre, improving knowledge of the rain that falls between the gauges. HydroNET RainWatch further provides smart tools to easily access, visualise, interpret and use the data (including exports for use in other software) and is a worldwide leading expert in real-time calibration of radar rainfall data.
HydroNET Water Auditing, easy insight into irrigated water use:
The Water Auditing Application calculates the irrigated water use for each field using satellite information and an innovative algorithm and makes it available for easy viewing and use in an online dashboard. It can be relatively quickly, cheaply and easily implemented across large regions and is specifically designed for such application, i.e. the easy monitoring of water use over large regions.
The application can aggregate the use against farm boundaries or catchment areas provided and generate automated reports.
