Delft-FEWS Basic Configuration Course – North American Deltares Software Days 2019, Baton Rouge

Delft-FEWS is an open data handling platform, initially developed as a hydrological forecasting and warning system. Essentially, it is a sophisticated collection of modules designed for building a forecasting, Evaluation and Early Warning System. Because of its unique characteristics concerning data importing, processing and model connections, Delft-FEWS has also been applied in a wide range of different operational situations. Examples are water quality forecasting, reservoir management, operational sewer management optimization, and water information systems.

This Delft-FEWS Configuration course will provide an introduction into setting up a FEWS system. The following topics will be addressed: configuration basics, importing and processing data, general adapter and model adapter concept, post-processing and visualization, and exporting and reporting data. Most elements will be accompanied with hands-on exercises.
A brief demonstration and explanation of a Delft-FEWS ‘live system’ is also part of this course.

Computing Requirements

You will need to bring your own laptop computer, either Windows or Linux but not a Mac.  We will provide software and exercises prior to the course so they may be installed prior to your arrival.  FEWS is built upon XML files so it strongly recommended you also have an XML editor on your laptop.


The registration fee for this 2-day course is $ 550 (excluding VAT).
