What Will Flood Warning Systems of the Future Look Like?

LONGMONT, COLORADO, June 11, 2015 – OneRain’s Mike Zucosky will be taking a look at flood warning systems of the future in his presentation at the National Hydrologic Warning Council’s 2015 Training Conference & Exposition in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 15-18, 2015. OneRain Inc., a leading provider of real-time and historical hydrologic and rainfall-related data solutions, software and services, is a title sponsor and one of the main contributors of the biennial conference.

The growth and increasing robustness of Internet services, especially wireless access, has changed how and where flood early warning systems can be deployed. Cloud-based software services are also changing how data is collected and viewed during critical events. The development of Smart Cities and the rise of Social Media has also begun to open new paths for data collection and dissemination. At the same time, growing concerns over the privacy of data and security related to IT infrastructure will require proactive solutions to these potential problems.

OneRain’s presentation will examine these trends and present possible impacts that innovation in other fields may have on the design and implementation of flood warning systems years from now. It will explore the future of sensing, data transmission and collection, data sharing, collaboration and distribution. Today’s flood warning paradigms will shift. The future of flood warning systems will be a brave new world.
