Transforming water data into information and knowledge

ICE WaRM Data Management


The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority had a need for access to near real-time data housed within an external database for their operational decision-making. The SaaS based HydroNET Water Control Room was implemented and now enables the CMA staff to securely and easily view, watch and report on the live water quality, rainfall and river flow data from an external Database via personalised web dashboards. As the solution uses exiting API’s, (application programming interfaces), the connection does not add a burden to the database administrators and does not duplicate the data, which remains at source, eliminating any versioning issues. As a solution it has greatly improved operational decision making within the CMA and improved collaboration with their partners and stakeholders.
