OWS4SWAT: Publishing and Sharing SWAT Outputs with OGC standards

Published in International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications. 2013, vol. 3, no. 3, p. 90-98
Abstract The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is a widely used hydrological model that produces several useful outputs (e.g. evapotranspiration, soil moisture, aquifer recharge, river discharge) as text files. Currently, visualizing and publishing SWAT outputs as geospatial data requires a lot of time and repetitive processing steps. Moreover, data used and produced are often not interoperable and restricted to software like ArcGIS or MapWindow. Consequently, integrating SWAT outputs with other datasets and/or models is difficult. To solve these issues, we propose an innovative, scalable and interoperable framework allowing (1) the automatization of post-processing tasks using orchestrated Web Processing Services (WPS) and (2) the publishing of SWAT outputs using interoperable data services (e.g Web Feature Service, Web Map Service). The proposed framework simplifies map/data production and facilitates exchange/integration of hydrological data with other sources.
