KISTERS and Open Data

Technology & Trends

Water is a scarce resource and is challenging the water managers day in and out.

The Water Energy Food Nexus requires open access to available information and more than ever before, decision makers, managers and experts must have access to water information they need, when they need it and in a format they can use.

In reality, data is often fragmented and stored redundantly in expert systems. Making all this information available can turn into a technical challenge specifically when the data is stored multiple times in closed data silos. The flexibility of the KISTERS Solution helps to integrate various water information directly at the root. Surface Water, Groundwater, Water Quality and Meteorological data can be stored in a central water information system. Once integrated the dissemination of water data is much easier and much more efficient. You are just one step away from building your open data access point. With the installation of the KISTERS Web Interoperability Server (KiWIS) your data can be made accessible through open services and standards. acts as a single, open and mature access point for the online collation and publication of your hydrological data.

Its fast and efficient processes for data requests and distribution make KiWIS the ideal tool for providing large volumes of hydrological data to the cloud, and to all interested parties; in real time!
