Open Source Software for Preprocessing GIS Data for Hydrological Models

For many studies models are used or developed. During modelling courses not much attention is paid to the preprocessing of input data and parameters needed for the models. A lot of open source software is available for this purpose. Besides desktop tools with graphical user interfaces, scripting is very useful for processing large datasets and timeseries. With the skills learned in this course you will be able to more efficiently process your data and setup and improve your models.

Fiji South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC)

The mission of the Applied Geoscience and Technology Division is "to help Pacific island people position themselves to respond effectively to the challenges they face and make informed decisions about their future and the future they wish to leave for the generations that follow." Its goal is to ensure that earth sciences are utilized fully in order to improve the livelihoods of Pacific communities. In the island context the earth sciences comprise geology, geophysics, oceanography and hydrology.

New Way to Map Drought and Water Use

Every month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Center for Climate Prediction has a drought briefing by teleconference to identify the latest drought areas in North America, writes Don Comis of the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS). ARS scientists, Martha Anderson and Bill Kustas, are hoping that in a year or so, data from their computer model/satellite package will give evapotranspiration (ET) maps a seat at that briefing.

Lake Sakakawea and Lake Mead Water Resources and Disasters

Current regional and global scale hydrological models, such as the Coupled Routing and Excess STorage (CREST) model, do not take into account the release and storage of water by man-made dams. These models make gross assumptions about dam operation, impairing their accuracy and utility. In many less economically developed areas of the world, it is not possible to acquire information on the timing and extent of water release in dammed regions. Therefore, a remotely sensed-based solution to this problem is highly desirable.

GeoSUR Red Geoespacial de América del Sur (Geospatial Network of South America)

GeoSUR is a program of the Andean Development Corporation established in 2007, which aims the establishment of a decentralized network to diffuse geographic information of South America. This objective will be achieved through the most recent space-based technologies.

GeoSur provides the access to geospatial data, geographic information and national or regional interactive maps of South America in order to extend the geographical knowledge of the American continent and to promote the development in the region.
