Monthly Contrail Training Series Live Webinars

Oct 17, 2019: Analysis at a Glance: Creating Custom Dashboards & Widgets in Contrail®

One of the best parts about Contrail Dashboards is the ability to visually bring into focus, specific datasets that are important indicators for your operations and decision-making. You can gather a variety of related datasets (Widgets) to use on your Contrail Dashboard pages, so that all the data are available together in a single context. With Contrail Dashboards you can present the data that matter most to you to help in your day-to-day decisions, or even create a Dashboard “on-the-fly” during an extreme storm event so that you can track and monitor specific sites that may be of particular interest.

During this training session, we’ll show examples and give you lots of ideas to help you get started in creating your own Dashboard pages. We’ll look at some typical examples and show you:

  • How to create custom dashboard pages that contain an arrangement of one or more Widget types
  • How you display each Dashboard in the Administration environment only, or share a Dashboard with your general users
  • How to turn on or off Dashboard displays
  • How to edit, preview, copy or delete defined Dashboards
  • How to arrange, edit, copy or delete Widgets from within a Dashboard
Nov 21, 2019: Contrail® - Making Decisions Easier with Effective Data Visualization

Are you spending more time wading through your data than making decisions based upon it? When it comes to making quick sense of large volumes of data, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, as the saying goes. Communicating your hydrometeorological data through data visualization using the right combination of charts, graphs and map interactions, can create a clear picture of information that is easily understood.

Contrail has an array of features to help you customize how you present your data. Last month, we covered how to create custom Dashboards. During this month’s training session, we’ll now look at how you can combine data from multiple sources to create advanced data visualizations, graphs and mapping. And we’ll show examples of watershed basin average rainfall computations using a combination of Contrail and OneRain’s real-time Gauge-Adjusted Radar Rainfall datasets.

Dec 19, 2019: ALERT2™ Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Management

ALERT2, the next generation of wireless communication protocol used in real-time hydrological and meteorological monitoring systems, uses a GPS-based TDMA scheme where every device has its own assigned time slot in which to transmit and avoid data transmission collisions. In this Contrail training session, you’ll learn how to configure and manage your ALERT2 network, frequencies, and TDMA network design. Understand, visualize and design your network, tracking capacity, available capacity, and data latency.
