About HP

  • The hydrology project aims at assisting the Government of India and the eleven participating States in developing comprehensive, easily accessed and user-friendly databases covering all aspects of the hydrological cycles including surface water and ground water in terms of quality and quantity and climatic measurements.
  • This should contribute to improve planning and management of water resources in India.
  • The main objective of Hydrology Project is to improve the Hydrological Information System (HIS) in all the participating states and Agencies of Government of India, to standardize the observation system with uniform format.

Software used for Data entry, validation, and storage:

 

  • SWDES
  • HYMOS
  • WISDOM
    1. SWDES(Surface Water Data Entry System):
      It is very essential to have customized software like SWDES which is dedicated to the needs of bulk entry of meteorological and surface water quality and quantity data, because:
      • The bulk of meteorological and hydrologic quantity and quality data is observed manually from a variety of instruments and equipment.
      • This observations generating large quantity of data on a continuous basis.
      • The data thus collected has to be properly entered on to the magnetic media for further processing.
    2. HYMOS (Hydrological Modeling System):

      HYMOS software is generally used for surface water data processing and analysis work, a licensed software.

      • HYMOS is an information system for storage, processing and presentation of hydrological and environmental data.
      • It combines an efficient database structure with powerful tools for data entry validation checks, analysis, retrival and presentation.
    3. WISDOM (Water Information System and Data Online Management):
      • It is used to store the hydrological and Meteorological data exported from other data entry and processing software like SWDES, HYMOS, GWDES, GEMS and IMD formats etc.
