SC1.5
FREEWAT: an open source and QGIS-based platform for water management
Convener: Rotman Criollo | Co-conveners: Iacopo Borsi, Massimiliano Cannata, Rudy Rossetto, Giovanna De Filippis
Tue, 09 Apr, 16:15–18:00
 
Room -2.31

This short course aim is to present FREEWAT platform for water management. The FREEWAT plugin (QGIS-based platform) is conceived as a canvas, where several codes (mainly belonging to the USGS MODFLOW family) for the simulation of the hydrological cycle, hydrochemical or economic processes, are integrated in the QGIS desktop and where large spatial datasets can be stored, managed and visualized. This aims at evaluating hydrologic balance and assessing groundwater status and availability to support planning and management activities.
The objective of this short course is to present FREEWAT modules and to demonstrate some of its capabilities through performing an exercise.

The course will consist in a short theoretical introduction followed by tutorials and exercises. The plugin executable will be provided (and available also in the official QGIS repository of experimental plugins) along with manuals and data for exercises. Participants to this course will work on their own laptop and they will be provided with all the necessary material prior the beginning of the conference.

Participants are invited to bring their own laptop to follow the examples. To follow properly the course you can install QGIS and then, from its internal experimental repository, you can download FREEWAT. Training material can be downloaded from the FREEWAT website: http://www.freewat.eu/download-information.

See you at the EGU2019!!
