Alert & Monitoring
Mitigate risks with timely global weather alerts
The experts of Weather Impact have one goal: to inform their clients about threat of extreme weather, whenever, wherever. We want to support our clients and help them to protect their people, assets and bottom line.
Our products and technologies are based on the best forecasting data available and is reliable and available around the clock all over the globe. We are experts in developing innovative solutions in the use of “big data” for weather analysis.
Extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain, storm, thunderstorms, snow, freezing rain and extreme temperatures are monitored worldwide by our meteorologists and warning systems. For each client tailored and personal risk-thresholds can be determined to ensure timely and relevant alerts.
Each month we provide a Climate Bulletin. The bulletin gives a global and regional overview of last months’ climate. Temperature and precipitation hot spots are discussed and interesting weather events are highlighted. See an example for November 2016 here:
Software and system
The flexibility of our systems also allows the alerts to be issued for secondary weather impacts, like crop development. In addition, local data can be integrated into our (global) products.
The forecasting applications are web-enabled and customizable in a web-portal. Also we provide smartphone apps for Google Android and Apple iOS.
The alert and monitoring services of Weather Impact are based on the HydroNET framework, delivered by our business partner HydroLogic. HydroNET is a distributed data and services platform, in which various companies develop weather and water applications. These applications use monitoring and forecasting data of meteorology and hydrology. HydroNET won the National ICT Innovation Award 2013 in the Netherlands, issued by the Dutch ICT industry.
Example: extreme precipitation over Europe
This service shows where in the next 7 days an accumulated amount of more than 50 mm of rainfall is forecasted. This service can be used as basis to show which locations need to be monitored closely over the next week. For more information, please contact us, or download the brochure of our Rain Alert.
