The goals of OpenAgua are to leverage cloud computing and web technologies for collaboratively solving complex water management challenges.
OpenAgua integrates some of the best open source technologies available today to create a rich application for water system modeling.
Model water systems with traditional simulation or more advanced, state-of-the-art optimization methods.
OpenAgua enables easy and flexible sharing and collaboration between experts, decision-makers, and stakeholders.
Water system data is organized using Hydra Platform, a modern data representation layer and web server for networks.
Use the compute engine of your choice for the heavy lifting, from your own laptop to OpenAgua-managed cluster computers in the cloud.
Explore planning scenario outcomes with integrated analytic tools, and connect with powerful 3rd party visualization applications.
Open source enables transparency, opportunities for collaborative improvements, and customizations.
OpenAgua is currently developed by the Hydrosystems Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, in collaboration with the Water Resources Group at the University of Manchester and the Water Center for Latin America and the Caribbean at Tecnológico de Monterrey. Current funding partners include: the Rockefeller Foundation, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute at the University of California, and Amazon Web Services, through their AWS Cloud Credits for Research Program.
