HydrOptim: optimising water and energy in irrigation systems

The key to minimising costs and increasing water efficiency in an irrigation distribution system is having the correct delivery strategy, that answers the following questions: How much water will be needed at the head of the distribution system? How much water should I release from the storages to satisfy demand and/or environmental flows? What [...]

The Big Rural Data (3): 5 Applications for Customer Services

In previous posts we have explored the benefits of working with big data in both hydrologic and hydraulic services and we have given some examples of data mining based on information that in most cases is already stored into databases, with the aim of enhancing operation and planning activities in an irrigation district. But [...]

The Big Rural Data (2): 5 Applications for Hydraulic Services

Following the rural water cycle, it is now time to discuss the benefits of dealing with and taking advantage of collected hydraulic data and how these enable water managers to take rural water and irrigation one step further. Over the last few years, water districts worldwide have invested millions of dollars in upgrading their [...]

The Big Rural Data: 5 Applications for Hydrological Services

Big data, known as the exponential growth and availability of data, is becoming the new trending topic in agriculture. Adasa will be shortly presenting a paper about Big Data, Analytics and Business Intelligence at the 2016 Irrigation Australian International Conference held in Melbourne between the 24th and 26th of May. Also, over the last few [...]

Australian Farmers embrace Big Data

The National Farmers Federation (NFF), Australia’s peak body representing farmers and, more broadly, agriculture across Australia, has begun development of a Digital Agriculture Service, an online platform for farmers which will have news and weather, markets and agribusiness stories and to turn vast quantities of real-time data into high performance farm management – generating [...]

Expanding monitoring coverage with virtual real time data

SCADA systems are widely used to monitor irrigation systems. They acquire real time data from gauging stations located in strategic points allowing the control over parameters such as instant flow or water level. Maintaining water levels is crucial to ensure regulating capabilities and to obtain customer satisfaction by providing an optimal delivery of water. [...]

5 Most common questions about Rural Water Intelligence

When we first talk with potential customers usually they ask us very similar questions. This post has the intention to collect the most common questions raised from these initial contacts and provide their answers. I hope this post will bring light on these initial uncertainties and it will help to better understand the Rural Water [...]

The use of Modelling in Real Time Monitoring Systems

Real-time monitoring systems have long been used as operational tools to collect and analyse data, as well as to ensure reliability of processes and detection of deviations from predefined thresholds. They provide key information on past and present conditions but they lack predictive capabilities for future circumstances. Hydrological and hydraulic models [...]
