September 28, 2017: Contrail Analytics – Explore Contrail’s Data Analysis and Reporting Tool

Contrail Analytics comprises a suite of integrated data-analysis tools that extends the power of Contrail. This comprehensive toolset allows you to quickly analyze Contrail data sets, identify and highlight trends and changes, and helps you to gain true insight into the performance of your hydromet sensor network. Explore how Contrail Analytics provides the analyses you need to make better decisions and improve the management of your hydromet network. During this training session, we’ll look at:

  • Rainfall Intensity Reports
  • Mass Balance Rainfall Analysis
  • Sensor Network Performance Monitoring
  • Bulk Exporting of Event Data
  • Time Series Data Export

Note: Contrail Analytics is available only with licensed Contrail Base Station and Contrail Server.

October 26, 2017: Analysis at a Glance: Creating Custom Dashboards and Real-time Widgets

The idea of Contrail Dashboards is to visually bring into focus, specific datasets that are important indicators for your operations and decision-making. You can gather related datasets (Widgets) to use on your Contrail Dashboard pages, so that all the data are available together in a single context. Contrail Dashboards enable you to present the data that matters most to you. For example, you can create Dashboards that help you in your day-to-day decisions, or create a Dashboard “on-the-fly” during an extreme storm event to track and monitor specific sites that may be at high risk of flooding.

This training will cover how you can create your own custom dashboards choosing widgets that suit your needs and/or your user’s specific needs. We’ll look at some typical examples and also discuss some best practices for the layout and content of Contrail’s Home page.

November 30, 2017: Making Decisions Easier with Effective Data Visualization

Are you spending more time wading through your data than making decisions based upon it? When it comes to making quick sense of large volumes of data, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, as the saying goes. Communicating your hydrometeorological data through data visualization using the right combination of charts, graphs and map interactions, can create a clear picture of information that is easily understood.

Contrail has an array of features to help you customize how you present your data. In our previous training, we covered how to create custom Dashboards. During this month’s training session, we’ll now look at how you can combine data from multiple sources to create advanced data visualizations, graphs and mapping. And we’ll show examples of watershed basin average rainfall computations using a combination of Contrail and OneRain’s real-time Gauge-Adjusted Radar Rainfall datasets.
