KISTERS Water Quality

The system for experts

Our solutions turn complex data into easy to understand information and generate new valuable insight to ensure a good overall state of our water resource

Built using proven, reliable technologies and knowledge gained from a world-wide customer base, our solution will meet all your organisation’s daily and long term water quality and ecological data storage, assessment and reporting needs. When used in conjunction with other KISTERS solutions it can integrate hydrological and meteorological real-time data with chemical-physical sampling results and biological observations all within a single system to provide a comprehensive environmental data management solution.

Respond to changing environments and possibilities

When it comes to measuring and assessing water quality whether it be via physical, chemical or biological indicators, the possibilities can be endless. You need a software package that your organisation can quickly and easily adapt to changing needs in data collection and assessment requirements. We provide a highly versatile and configurable solution that can meet all your data storage, data integration and analytics requirements.

Conveniently correlate all water quality with lab results traditionally stored in LIMS

More significant than the volume of data is the variety of water quality data - whether samples are collected manually and/or automatically. Allowing managers to display and investigate relationships between data sets is crucial. Auditing existing lab practices via meta-data trends on sample container specifications, sample storage times, and temperatures at which samples are shipped to labs, can be achieved in order to improve workflow.

Integrate ecological data & discrete data from field samples with continuous time series data

As you bring together previously isolated information, more streamlined management of the data is essential. Graphs, charts, box plots, maps and more options readily reveal patterns in monitoring information. Visualizing data can help to overcome implicit biases, verify intuitions, and add confidence to decisions. Design more integrative management programs that protect and restore watersheds and ecosystems your community appreciates.

Water quality data analytics

In order for your water quality data to be of use to you, it needs to be turned into information. This is achieved via various means such as known standardised statistical techniques such as regression, trend and frequency analysis, graphical visualisation techniques such as box whisker plots or spatial representations of the data. In addition there are many statistical packages in use that are familiar to professionals with which they are comfortable. KISTERS Water Quality and Ecology gives you the option to either choose from a suite of built-in data analytics or interface with your favourite statistical package.

Fully assess your ecosystems

Rather than relying solely on single water quality indicators such as the presence of toxic chemicals or levels of nutrients such as nitrogen or phosphorus for example, is also important for environmental managers to turn to biological data as a means of assessing the health and robustness of a given aquatic or riparian ecosystem. Whilst a water sample provides only a snapshot in time, assessment of species richness and composition can provide a much broader understanding of the long term health of a water system. Most importantly these bioindicators can be used in conjunction with relevant physical and chemical indicators for a more comprehensive assessment. We give you the tools to integrate your sampling and biological data side by side.
