At WaterITech our mission is to contribute to a sustainable use and management of the world’s precious water resources.

We are leading experts in hydrological and ecological modelling, and apply models to help analyze how different management choices may impact a water system.

Our models can be plugged into the unique solutions by, which enables operational hydrological and ecological forecasting for any location in the world.

This makes our solutions highly relevant for water managers worldwide.

Video tutorials

Below you find a series of video tutorials, which demonstrate how you may process global datasets by a series of GIS operations (e.g. clipping data for your area of interest), so that they can be applied in the SWAT+ model.

Please visit our Data page to find info about the data sources we have tailored to ease model applications.
