Nira.web® is a provisioning offer for precipitation data from HST and the MeteoGroup. The data provided is obtained from radar images and calibrated over a dense network of conventional rainstopters. Through this combination of radar and classical ground survey network, historic, current and forecast precipitation data can be made available for each location in the Federal Republic of Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg. This innovative technology offers significant benefits for water management and flood protection.
NiRA.web® provides a web-based information portal that provides rainfall data anytime, anywhere. The available data are clearly and clearly prepared. A user-friendly evaluation graphically displays the series of measurements. The evaluated series of precipitation can be exported directly to Excel or CSV format or automatically to third-party systems. In addition, the portal provides a cartographic representation of rainfall development in Germany with calibrated 6-hour rainfall totals.16 Radar stations and over 1,500 ground monitoring stations collect precipitation data and generate forecasts of up to 72 hours using special weather models.
In addition, NiRA.web® provides up-to-date rainfall and precipitation forecasting information via an OPC UA interface directly to other software systems such as SCADA.web or KANiO®. A special added value is that precipitation information can be transmitted directly to the automation systems online and thus used as a further process variable in automation.
