OpenEarth is open source standardization web services visualization

OpenEarth uses open source tools for kickstarting your tailor-made data management solution. This will help you in storing, sharing and providing information of valuable data, such as observations, geographic data, and model results

Data is essential

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.

Data management checklist!

Do you recognize yourself in the following statements?

  • Do you use standardized formats?
  • Can you download your data online?
  • Can you show maps of your data online?
  • Can others find your datasets?
  • Do you validate your data?
  • Do you keep your raw data?
  • Is your data processing automated?
  • Do you keep track of issues (lineage)?
  • Do you have a data model?

OpenEarth greatly improves data management

OpenEarth consists of Open Source tools to transform and store your data in a standardized format. This enables you to easily:

  • Show the data in online viewers
  • Help others find your data in online catalogues
  • Share the data through an online download
  • Store the changes in the data (version control)

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.

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.

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.

Global Flood Forecast

Floods are one of the main risks for coastal cities worldwide. To assist worldwide early warning for flood risk assessments and analyses Deltares presents this data viewer. This viewer presents the results of the GLObal Flood Forecasting Information System (GLOFFIS) and the GLObal Storm Surge Information System (GLOSSIS) of Deltares. These forecasts can be used for early warning in those areas currently lacking any forecasting capability, or can provide boundary conditions for more refined local models.
