• Display maps containing static information (i.e. catchment boundaries, hydrography, stations locations, ect.)
  • Display maps containing dynamic information (i.e. rainfall maps from RADAR and NWP models, 2D models results, ect.)
  • Perform operations: create maps containing cumulated values (i.e. cumylated rainfall over a time period), average values (i.e. mean rainfall over a catchment), minimum and maximum recorded values, ect.
  • Perform queries on stations properties and data
  • Filters stations to be displayed by data type and overcome alarm thresholds








Different symbols are used to represent the location of the stations and their type, as a function of the sensors that are installed and functionalities. In addition, the color of the symbols is used to display the operating status of the station, for example rain / no rain for rain gauges, and the overcoming of alarm thresholds.



EFFORTS system can show the following types of data:

  • Precipitation
  • Air temperature
  • River water level and flow
  • Air humidity
  • Wind speed and direction
  • Evaporation
  • Water level and volume of artificial reservoirs
  • Air pressure
  • Number sunshine hours
  • Solar radiation

The type of data to be displayed can be expanded on the basis of the monitoring needs of the User.



Different tools are available to perform the following taks:

  • Real-time data validation (minimum and maximum values, maximum increment)
  • Data sampling (interpolation and integral mean)
  • Gap filling (Kalman filters)
  • Real-time stage-discharge transformation using rating curves







EFFORTS system allows Users to configure alarm thresholds for the variables that are monitored and forecasted. A color code of yellow-orange-red is used to highlight situations of attention-alert-alarm.


Users can configure alarm thresholds for different elements:

  • Alarms for point features: for each sensor Users can define up to three alarm thresholds. If one of the thresholds is exceeded, the station symbol changes its color.
  • Alarms for linear features: for river reaches Users can set up alarm thersholds on measured or forecasted water levels. When thresholds are exceeded, the elements are colored according to the colour scale yellow-orange-red.
  • Alarms for areas: for sub-catchments Users can set up alarm thersholds on cumulated rainfall over the last hours. When thresholds are exceeded, areas are colored according to the colour scale yellow-orange-red.
  • Filters stations: stations to be displayed can be filters on the basis of overcome alarm thresholds, for example Users can show only stations that have overcome the "extreme danger" threshold to immediately highlight dangerous situations







The time reference of EFFORTS system can be moved back in time at any time to display data and forecasts issused in the past.

There are two methods available to the Users to display data in the past:

  • Move the time reference of EFFORTS visual interface in the past: all the windows displaying data and forecasts, will be referred to that time in the past.. In this way, the EFFORTS visual interface allow Users to analyze data and forecasts as if they were in a moment of the past. The feature is useful in post event to analyze the behavior of the models, analyze the decisions that have been taken, prepare reports, etc..
  • Keep the time reference of EFFORTS system in the present and move the time reference of windows displaying data and forecasts. This feature can be used to highlight a situation of interest and keep it displayed during real-time activities. In a multi-windows visualization it is possible to set copies of the same window to display data and forecasts at different times. For example, Users can display water levels at the same river cross-section at different times during the same flod event.
