RainWatch: reliable weather information at your fingertips

HydroNET RainWATCH consists of three web applications that provide easy access to available data from weather stations, radar, satellites and weather forecasts via your web browser. Additional tools include exporting time series data to your hydrologic/hydraulic models, uploading specific spatial files to calculate catchment area rainfall averages and determining the severity of rainfall events in real-time via your Water Control Room.

 

RainMap: don’t miss the storm between your gauges

Combine and visualise historical and real-time rainfall information for any location. This also includes areas between gauges thanks to the smart combination of point (weather stations) and gridded data from satellites and radars.  The RainMap contains smart tools to optimally benefit from the best available rainfall information to make WeatherSmart decisions.
