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.
