HydroLogic projects

Currently we only provide information on some of our major projects.


Key to flood-resilient cities

Floods caused by excessive rainfall affect many cities around the world. Flooding-induced disasters are becoming increasingly frequent and range from local, water-related inconveniences to flood-induced disruption of society and devastation.
HydroCity provides a cooperation platform where several knowledge institutes and private and public organisations in the water and earth-observation sectors have joined forces to help cities improve their flood resilience. The consortium is open to international SME partners providing services in water and ICT.


Optimum water use for water supply and drought prevention in rural areas

A comprehensive and generic Decision Support System (DSS) has been developed for the management of water quantity and water quality, using hydrodynamic, hydrologic and unsaturated zone models. The system is used for detailed analysis of soil-water interactions and operational water management. 
HydroLogic developed data streams of monitored soil moisture and other hydrologic variables, real-time running models, and information channels in this research project, teaming up with other companies, research organisations and stakeholders of farmer cooperatives, water board and province.


Localised environmental and health information system

The Lenvis project has devised an innovative, collaborative decision-support network for exchanging information on localised environmental and health services between stakeholders, with a focus on air and water quality.  
Lenvis aims to facilitate collaboration between stakeholders such as environmental protection agencies, health institutions and service providers, policymakers, the general public and environmental communities in Europe. Lenvis integrates social networks into the information chain of web services and user feed-back services. HydroLogic initiated this FP7 project and has for the past two years performed all the coordinating activities.

Merging hydrological models and EO data for reliable information on water

This project focuses on water safety and security in rural and urban areas. Earth Observation is used for identifying land use and for real-time monitoring of the leaf area index, evaporation and soil moisture. This is combined with hydro-meteorological models for forecasting high intensity rainfall events and so on. These hydrologic cycle components are essential to optimise water management in conditions of limited or abundant water. 


Public water observatory

WeSenseIt enables the general public to actively contribute to information gathering, evaluation and communication. Various forms of community participation in water governance are being used to develop an interdisciplinary concept:
  1. Gathering environmental data via optimised networks of sensors, directly from individuals’ smart phones and the social media.
  2. Developing models and decision-making tools to assimilate social and physical data.
  3. Two-way feedback and exchange of environmental knowledge and experience between the general public and authorities.

Flood risk modelling for Randstad conurbation

Development of the largest national 1D/2D model for flood analysis

The Randstad is the most densely populated area of the Netherlands with cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. The area is surrounded by the sea and rivers and the surface levels go down to 6 m below mean sea level. To assess flood risk, HydroLogic was asked by three provinces to develop a flood inundation model for the entire area.
We have developed automatic algorithms and procedures to transparently generate the 1D/2D over-land flow models from existing high resolution DEM of 0.5 x 0.5 m and from spatial information on infrastructures.
Now models can be generated on request at various spatial resolutions which are available to the clients and consultancy companies for detailed analyses.
