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 hydrological forecasting system customised to the specific requirements of an individual organisation. Because of its unique characteristics concerning data importing and 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 even peat fire prediction. Read more
Delft-FEWS offers many options for the user to interact with the system. For a modern operational (forecasting) system this interaction is crucial. In water management, and other sectors, different types of models are being used to simulate real-world processes. Delft-FEWS is capable to connect to many of these models, and new connections can be made easily. Read more
Delft-FEWS is being developed at Deltares, an independent institute for applied research in the field of water, subsurface and infrastructure. Two times a year a new version of Delft-FEWS is released, containing new features and bug fixes. Read more about the development process.
Delft-FEWS supports the following languages: English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Chinese, Indonesian.
Deltares is a leading, independent, Dutch-based research institute for matters relating to water, soil and the subsurface. We apply our advanced expertise to help people live safely and sustainably in delta areas, coastal zones and river basins. We conduct research and provide specialist advisory services for government authorities and the corporate sector in The Netherlands and worldwide. We constantly extend our knowledge base via government research programmes and contract research, forming consortia with universities and other research institutes, encouraging innovation, and accelerating the practical implementation of new theoretical advances. We aim towards the sustainable enhancement of the living environment, with technological solutions that have the support of society as a whole, putting into practice our strategic principle: ‘Enabling Delta Life'.
