IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

NEW OPERATIONAL SERVICES FOR WATER RELATED ISSUES THE SWITCH-ON APPROACH
Author : PAOLO MAZZOLI , STEFANO BAGLI , DAVIDE BROCCOLI , VALERIO LUZZI , FRANCESCA PICCININI
Recently, a collaborative project started called SWITCH-ON (EU FP7 project No 603587) coordinated by SMHI (http://water- switch-on.eu/) as part of the contemporary European movement imposed by the INSPIRE directive and the Open Data Strategy. Among It?s R&D activities GECOsistema develops and expands inside SWITCH-ON a set of tools to tackle major water related issues, from reservoir and irrigation supply, to hydrological change adaptation and hydropower potential mapping. Here we present on-going developments of APRIL, HyCAW and high-resolution European Hydropower Atlas. APRIL consists in a tool to provide seasonal run-off forecasts, taking advantage of open datasets or low- cost data and performing prediction through calibrated machine learning algorithms. HyCAW is a tool that supports the assessment of adaptation options to cope with a change in the temporal distribution of water availability as well as in the total quantity. EU HPA is supposed to provide all relevant information necessary to appraise the feasibility of a micro- hydropower plant at a specific site, taking into account hydrological as well as technical and economic factors. All the tools share a common vision of the project to address water concerns and currently untapped potential of open data for improved water management across the EU. Users will be guided through a common styled Web GIS interface, created through open source Web Mapping Application using Open-Layer and Map Server, exploring available hydrological information in the area of interest, plotting available data, performing analysis, and getting report and statistics.
