Concept

FutureWater biedt wereldwijd hoogwaardige onderzoeks- en adviesdiensten, waarbij wetenschappelijk onderzoek wordt gecombineerd met praktische oplossingen voor waterbeheer. WaterMaps is het webportaal waar FutureWater zijn geo-dataproducten en resultaten samenbrengt die zijn afgeleid van tal van projecten en (operationele) diensten van over de hele wereld. Het biedt een gestaag groeiende verzameling resultaten van een breed scala aan watergerelateerde projecten en diensten, die interactief kunnen worden verkend door op de kaart te bladeren. De analyse- en informatieproducten die te zien zijn op WaterMaps worden gebruikt om de effecten te beoordelen die verband houden met overstromingen, droogtes, irrigatie, waterkracht en voedselproductie.

FutureWater-toepassingen

FutureWater gebruikt state-of-the-art, open-source kwantitatieve methoden om besluitvormers te informeren over huidige en toekomstige uitdagingen op het gebied van watervoorraden. WaterMaps is een visualisatietool die is ontwikkeld om gemakkelijke toegang te bieden tot modelresultaten en producten met ruimtelijke gegevens, verkregen uit projecten die uitdagingen aanpakken met betrekking tot:

  • Landbouw
  • Klimaatverandering
  • Flying sensors (drones)
  • Hydrologie
  • Hydraulische eigenschappen van de bodem
  • Waterschaarste

  • The impacts of 1.5 °C global temperature increase

    Global warming is considered as one of the major threats for the world’s population and coping with it may be one of the largest challenges for this century. The “Paris Agreement”, signed in 2015, agreed on “a long-term goal of keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below…

  • Leapfrogging Delta Management: Showcase operational rainfall monitoring

    Significant decisions are to be made to manage and engineer the water systems in Myanmar and to develop large structural and non-structural projects (e.g. hydropower dams, urban water use, industrial development, extension of irrigation capacity, operational quantity and quality management, etc.). The Myanmar and Dutch governments have agreed to cooperate…

  • Mapping the Potential for Rainwater Harvesting under Various Scenarios

    Identifying areas where rainwater harvesting is a feasible solution is one of the aims of the RAIN Foundation. In 2010 FutureWater and Deltares were asked by RAIN Foundation to develop maps indicating the potential for rainwater harvesting (RWH) for Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso. FutureWater and Deltares used the same…
