During the Delft-FEWS Basic Configuration Course, the basics of Delft-FEWS configuration will be explained based on several hands-on exercises and short lectures by Delft-FEWS experts of Deltares.
Delft-FEWS is a software package developed by Deltares to provide an easy and modular way of setting up operational forecasting systems. Due to the modular approach Delft-FEWS allows you to plug in a wide range of data sources, models and data types. This can all be configured in the Delft-FEWS configuration files.
Delft-FEWS was originally intended for hydrologists and used for Flood Early Warning. Currently Delft-FEWS is used in over 40 countries over the whole world and has expanded its areas of applicability towards droughts, hydropower, coastal systems, data conversion, shipping, dredging and long term scenario studies.
After taking this course the participants have a good understanding of the structure of the Delft-FEWS configuration. They are able to configure basic functionality in Delft-FEWS and know how to improve their skills and where to look for documentation on more advanced functionality of Delft-FEWS.
In this course the participants learn:
This course is a blended educational experience, meaning that both self-paced modules and instructor led sessions are held. During 4 consecutive interactive sessions, you’ll progress from the basics of using the Delft-FEWS application to configuring the system for your own use.
Course participants will be provided with a functioning Delft-FEWS application as a starting point, and access to the online course materials for 1 year.
In preparation of the training, we’ll send you all the material and will ask you to install the stand alone Delft-FEWS application on your own machine. While attending the training, it will be essential that you have a sufficiently fast internet connection to support a video call, as well as a headset.
There are no prerequisites for this course. Of course a background in or familiarity with any of the following will be beneficial, however, not necessary:
