Scaling Up Your Insights: An Early Warning for Water Resilience in a Changing Climate
Critical water availability intelligence, reported on a monthly basis as decision-ready information for all available surface water bodies, in direct support of sustainable water resource management and climate risk mitigation.
In WaterSphere360® we provide a first-of-its-kind, unique globally scalable information service that offers water resource managers and water-use communities with easy to access, up-to-date intelligence (every month) on the status of available water resources.
This unique service, utilizing advanced Earth Observation technologies, produces invaluable intelligence on the location and volumetric quantification of surface water resources – complimented by water quality, precipitation, and ground-water status indicators – enabling historical, current and future water resource conditions to be determined, monitored and predicted, using a single, integrated service.
What We Do
The suite of information products designed to provide monthly operational support to water management decision-making consists of:
Collectively or individually these products provide need-appropriate information for both planning (i.e., long-term) and operations (i.e., short-term) levels of management.
Our operationally proven monthly water monitoring service generates affordable, user-ready, up-to-date water resource status information encompassing the full water landscape from precipitation input, water location, and extent, storage volumes, and associated environmental impacts; and provides direct support to water management and planning activities. This unique service is easily accessible via web-based information dashboards, through which information can be accessed and downloaded in a variety of formats according to user preference, ranging from report-ready content to GIS-compatible digital data.
