July 27, 2017: Data Quality Control in Contrail

All data collected by OneRain’s Contrail platform use automated data QA/QC processes. Contrail checks each data record and flags it with a quality flag. Additionally, Contrail supports ratings table lookups for sensors and can display both the raw (source) sensor and the rated data in both tabular and graphical views. In this session, we’ll introduce you to ways you can manage data quality processes in Contrail:

  • Ratings and Offsets to Raw Data
  • Raw or Rated Data Display
  • Editing and Revalidating Data
  • Ways to manage “Provisional” and “Finished” data
  • Data Audit trail
August 31, 2017: Creating Synthetic Sensors through Equations and Rating Tables

Join us during this live training session where you will learn how to incorporate hydrometeorological equations in Contrail. We will show you how to set up the following “Sensors”, and we’ll explain the main differences between these 3 types of derived sensors:

  • Synthetic Sensors (e.g., Rain Increment, Flow Rate using a Rating Table)
  • Equation Sensors (e.g., Dew Point, 24-Hour Average, 1-Hour Accumulation)
  • Time Series Sensors (e.g., Time Series 24-Hour Rain Accumulation, ETo)

We’ll also check out some new features in Contrail:

  • New! Evapotranspiration Potential Equation
  • New! “Find” Sites on front-end application side of Contrail
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.
