MENDELU experts focus on digital water

29. 2. 2024
The team of experts from Mendel University in Brno is developing new methods within the framework of the European project WATERLINE under HORIZONT WIDERA call, focused on digital water. This action will bring the processes related to water in the landscape closer not only to students but also to a wider audience or professional public.

One of the outputs completed so far is an application aimed at teaching the dimensioning of a watercourse bed, but it is designed in such a way that any spatial data can be displayed in it. It enables the “tiling” of large data, which allows the rendering of large surfaces in real time. The data for the visualization is provided by a cloud service, so it can be easily changed by the user without having to program anything. In the next phase of the project, the experts will focus especially on collaboration within virtual reality, which has huge potential for teaching and practical use, for example in crisis management. In addition to the WATERLINE project researchers from the Department of Applied and Landscape Ecology and the Spatial Hub laboratory, several students are also working on the development of new methods.
