AWRA Colorado Section Presents
Tuesday February 27, 2018
New Software Tools for Snowpack Water Supply Analysis
The Open Water Foundation has developed software tools for the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Division of Water Resources to better understand snowpack conditions for water supply. These tools use the SNODAS dataset, which uses remote sensed data to estimate snowpack conditions throughout the United States. SNODAS has the advantage of providing snowpack estimates in locations where SNOTEL stations do not exist, and providing extent of snow cover. Data visualizations provide context, navigation, and access to data products. OWF is also working on open source GeoProcessor software, which automates spatial data processing.
