Leakshot, activities documentation

For Falcon, the firm I am co-founder, I developed a web site aimed to record our activities. The Hydro- part of Hydroinformatix means we work in the field of looking for and pinpointing leaks in water and gas networks. So we needed a dedicated tool. Now everything we find in the networks we examine (leak, damage, breakage, even simple position) is immediately reported in the system database via smartphone App and web services.

Leakshot is the result. Please feel free to send your comments…



Important Python resources for Hydrologists

I cannot fpythonorget to signal an important page, full of interesting and well described links to libraries, notes, documents concerning the varied world of Python, aimed to Hydrology and to hydrologists. Probably I would not dare to say so openly what page’s author adfirms:

I am actually impressed by the quality of the contributions in Python. I think there is not anymore reason to use commercial program like Matlab in Universities. What Matlab does, also Python does.

but it describes exactly what I think

RMAP – important resource

Weather-Station-128x128I would like to be the first or one of first people quoting it: RMAP project. It is a very interesting initiative for a network of environmental data agents. The acronym stays for Rete di Monitoraggio Ambientale Partecipativo (Environmental and Participated Monitoring Network).

RMAP provides a whole set of – absolutely open source – tools, from hardware sensors up to web server for data gathering and distributing.

I am sure you will hear again about it. For the meanwhile… stay in touch.

Welcome to Hydroinformatix the Gaul

“Ils sont fous ces romains” (“These Romans are crazy”) – Obelix

Welcome everybody!

First and above all, I must stress the fact that I am aware that another, much more serious, blog named hydroinformatics exists. I forward you to it, if you want to know a lot of interesting and important things about hydroinformatics.

My humble creature name just resembles the ones of Asterix and Obelix, with all their friends in the Gallic village. Like that village, this blog about my passion about technology, water and computer science is very small, but “One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.” (GKC)!
