The WorldWater project gives users access to several products and software.
The WorldWater software package includes the following elements:
WorldWater develops cost-effective methods for large-area and high-temporal monitoring of all water bodies (i.e. inland and coastal, lakes/reservoirs and rivers) in both their extent and volume. Surface Water Extent (SWE) is derived from the synergistic usage of optical and SAR imagery and integrating all observation from free and open satellite missions, i.e. Sentinel 1, Sentinel 2 and Landsat. The surface volume is inferred using Water Surface Elevation (WSE) estimates from radar altimetry observations such as Sentinel 3 SRAL, Jason 3 and Cryosat. The end result will be national maps showing surface waters for 4 consecutive years (2017-2020) for the chosen pilot countries.
The examples below showcase previous work done by partners involved in the WorldWater, illustrating the capabilities of the project consortium:
