HydroMaster, the cloud service for precipitation information and warnings goes live

Posted: Monday 6th February 2017

Extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency, with climate projections indicating that this trend will continue in future. With HydroMaster, KISTERS and MeteoGroup support customers to limit the impact of heavy rain events on operations, assets and infrastructures. The professional cloud service for weather information and forecasts helps local authorities, cities and municipalities, infrastructure owners and utility companies to be better informed and prepared.

HydroMaster offers a live web service for viewing, analysing and archiving historical, current and upcoming precipitation events. With its high spatial and temporal resolution and detailed warning functions, HydroMaster is the perfect tool for effectively managing precipitation related risks and ensuring preventive actions are taken to minimise the impact on infrastructure and assets. HydroMaster integrates observation and forecast data based on calibrated high resolution rainfall radar, as well as refined deterministic and probabilistic forecasts, and visualizes information for individual hotspots, zones of interest and catchments.

Situational awareness

Severe weather events pose a direct threat to life, health, infrastructure, production and assets. Such threats are becoming increasingly severe due to increased urbanisation, population growth and climate change.

Extreme and highly localised weather events are appearing more frequently, meaning stakeholders in civil protection and the supply industry require an increased awareness of future precipitation events in order to adjust their decision-making and actions to deal with potential impacts of climate change.

"With HydroMaster, stakeholders are always prepared. The web service not only shows what is coming, but also when it is coming and the expected impact on operations." says Donat Retif, CEO at MeteoGroup. Klaus Kisters, CEO at KISTERS, adds HydroMaster gives us a rich visual forecast and high precision warning system to better prepare and respond to life-threatening and destructive weather events."
