Learning Delft-FEWS

Delft-FEWS is incredibly versatile software, it is a platform that is used for flood forecasting, reservoir management, real-time operations, hydrological data validation and much more. This is because the system is highly configurable with users having the ability to set the look and feel of graphs, create customized displays and link over a hundred different types of import data and models.

Learning how to build and configure your own Delft-FEWS forecasting system is the topic of this page. Learning Delft-FEWS configuration can be done through different ways:

  • eLearning
