The most valuable part of every data intensive project is data. Data gathering often requires a substantial part of the budget of a project. Centralized, discoverable and easy to access to data that can be easily reused in other projects is of vital importance for current and future work.
Do you recognize yourself in the following statements?
OpenEarth consists of Open Source tools to transform and store your data in a standardized format. This enables you to easily:
This quick scan tool is developed by Rijkswaterstaat and Deltares and can only be used as a first screening of the state of vegetation in the flood plains of the Dutch river area for the selected satellite image.
Ri2de is a webGIS toolkit based on global road datasets [OpenStreetMap] in combination with raster data to calculate road susceptibility [slope, distance to water among others]. The tool is designed to be flexible and configurable to be adapted to every country's road infrastructure evaluation needs.
The Adaptation and Support tool [AST] was developed by Deltares and can be used to explore measures that increase the water resilience of an area.
MSFD-Eutro is a free and open, active and interactive web-mapping service that shows chlorophyll indicator maps based on growing-season statistics (mean, and max as P90). MSFD-Eutro aims to facilitate the use and appreciation of ocean colour data by policy advisors and policy makers for the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD)
With this tool, dutch farmers will be able to see the effects of measures to improve the water quality (nutrients concentration) in their parcels (BRP).
The Dutch Hydrological Instrumentarium (NHI) is a toolbox for software and data for the development of groundwater and surface water models on a national and regional scale. Within NHI we work towards open data and software. In this portal a start has been made with the opening up of data and NHI data can be viewed and downloaded.
In the context of compensation for the construction of the Second Maasvlakte, the Kappiteluinen area has been redeveloped. Measurements have been carried out for a number of years to monitor the developments of the area. This data is collected on a version-managed storage pending further processing of this data into products / information for end users. This is partly data collected in recent years and partly data that have yet to be collected in the coming years.
FAST gives a first indication of the effect of vegetation on foreshore protection. Sentinel data is used for high resolution information about vegetation presence and intertidal elevation.
Thanks to this web application the reduction of the groundwater level as a result of vertical groundwater abstraction can be estimated. In particular, the tool is intended to estimate the influence of (temporary) vertical groundwater extraction (such as source dewatering) in the vicinity of vulnerable nature reserves.
Mozambique is a country threatened by several natural hazards, the most frequent of which are droughts, floods and tropical cyclones. Irregular and limited rainfall results in water scarcity. Floods and cyclones are recurrent hazards that severely impact infrastructure, services and the economy. Mozambique is also at risk of earthquakes due to its location at the intersection of the African Nubian plate on the west and the African Somalia plate on the east, at the southern end of the East African Rift, which is the source of many major African earthquakes. In this viewer the hazards, with their impacts and exposure of the school buildings in Mozambique are visualized.
The SandMotorViewer is a web viewer built for TU Delft, following a request from the University of visualizing data collected in and around the SandMotor since its birth in 2011. Data is stored as NetCDF in an OPeNDAP server. Bathymetric data, sediment grainsize distribution, aeolian Transport, drifters path can be visualized via the Web interface, allowing the user to change time span and generate graphs of requested variables.
This area atlas contributes to the exploration of solution variants for nutrients in surface water and groundwater protection areas in the Meuse region. In the atlas we present available maps and knowledge about subsurface, hydrology, water quality and policy. This information is input for discussions in the pilot areas on solutions.
The Deltares Data Portal is the starting place to find and publish spatial data sets. The portal facilitates the discovery, multiple usage and dissemination of spatial data.
FAST is developing down-stream services for the European Earth Observation Programme Copernicus to support cost-effective, nature-based shoreline protection against flooding and erosion. Open global datasets can be found in the data portal.
