The waterRIDE™ FLOOD Forecast Console is designed to automate the operation of a waterRIDE™ based flood forecasting system. A manual system typically uses waterRIDE™ FLOOD Manager to setup and operate the system as desired, updating forecast gauge levels by entering gauge level forecasts.
The waterRIDE™ FLOOD Forecast Console provides a means of streamlining the operation of the system, as well as distributing forecast information to a wider audience. This may involve the use of multiple waterRIDE™ FLOOD Viewer licenses for intuitive, read only access to the forecast data and affectation.
Setup to run a regular schedule, the waterRIDE™ FLOOD Forecast Console will:
Collect forecast information:
From a file
From the web (eg XML distribution, http GET REQUEST)
Setup and execute real-time hydrologic models
Load and process a waterRIDE™ flood forecasting project
Flood intelligence creation (integration of forecast surface with GIS datasets)
Distribute waterRIDE™ surface files for access using waterRIDE™ FLOOD Manager and/or Viewer
Distribute (LAN/WAN or web/FTP) forecast and affectation as general files:
