Longmont, CO, June 13, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The growth and increasing robustness of Internet services, especially wireless access, has changed how and where flood early warning systems can be deployed. Cloud-based software services are also changing how data is collected and viewed during critical events. The development of Smart Cities and the rise of Social Media has also begun to open new paths for data collection and dissemination. At the same time, growing concerns over the privacy of data and security related to IT infrastructure will require proactive solutions to these potential problems.
OneRain's presentation at the National Hydrologic Warning Council Conference will examine these trends and present possible impacts that innovation in other fields may have on the design and implementation of flood warning systems years from now. It will explore the future of sensing, data transmission and collection, data sharing, collaboration and distribution. Today’s flood warning paradigms will shift. The future of flood warning systems will be a brave new world.
The 2015 National Hydrologic Warning Council (NHWC) biennial conference—the largest conference of its kind in the United States—will be attended by prominent federal and state officials and hydrologic warning professionals. As one of the main sponsors and industry experts, several other members of the OneRain team are presenting throughout the conference on a variety of topics including designing networks for ALERT2™, and the visualization tools that aid in those designs. Stop by OneRain's booth where you can meet with the team and see some of the new features and enhancements recently added to OneRain's Contrail® real-time hydrologic monitoring and warning software application.
