Quick Start

An open water management platform
for GIS experts, hydraulic engineers
and network operators

What is Qatium?

Qatium is a collaborative community of professionals dedicated to making water management tools accessible to all.

How do I use the app?

To use Qatium, create an account, upload a GIS dataset (GeoJSON or Shapefile) or hydraulic model (in INP format) of anu clean water distribution network. If you are using an alternative modeling platform such as InfoWorks WS Pro or Synergi, you can export your models into EPANET INP format. If that's the case, make sure the the modeling controls have been successfully exported.

Build and validate hydraulic models

To use Qatium, you need to be able to upload a GIS dataset (GeoJSON or Shapefile) or EPANET models (in INP format) of a water distribution network.
If you are using an alternative modeling platform such as InfoWorks WS Pro or Synergi, you will need to export your models into the EPANET INP format and confirm that modeling controls have been successfully exported.

Run your first simulations

Once you have accessed the app, you begin by uploading or dragging and dropping an INP file or a GIS dataset. Our assistant Q will help you run “what if” scenarios (e.g. shutting down and opening pipes). You can also use the slider to simulate the network throughout each day or week. Each model is unique to the user and can be deleted at any time.
Access to Qatium can be provided to as many users as desired. Models of less than 50,000 nodes are recommended.

Security and compliance

Your data will be stored on Amazon’s Simple Storage Service. Amazon S3 is an object storage service that offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. S3 maintains compliance programs, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, FedRAMP, EU Data Protection Directive, and FISMA, to help you meet regulatory requirements.
All names and datasets you share with us will be considered private and confidential, meaning we will not resell/publish your data.

Open roadmap

You will also be asked to weigh-in on our open product roadmap.

Free forever pricing

There is no financial cost or IT development work associated with the early access programme. Certain features in the future may require a software license.

Don't have data to upload to Qatium?

At Qatium we believe in accessibility, simplicity and openness. Therefore, we have built a demo model for you to start using Qatium

How can I collaborate with Qatium?

At Qatium, we love feedback and invite our users to contribute to our roadmap. We may contact you to ask you about your experience. And if there’s a fit, we’d welcome you to our user and software developer community.

Used by over 150 utilities around the world

All data you upload to Qatium is encrypted and is private and confidential at all times.

To use Qatium, you need to be able to upload the GIS data set or a hydraulic model of a water distribution network.

Qatium does not resell or publish user data. You can permanently delete your data at all times.

Version 1.2 (Current)

Automatic detection of arterial networks - Oct 15, 2021

Qatium is able to detect the pipes of the network that make up the main arterial network using their relative diameters and/or by their connection to singular elements of the model such as tanks, pumps, reservoirs, valves etc.

Machine learning models for automatic demand estimations - Aug 17, 2021

Using AI, Qatium is able to estimate network demand based on the area’s total population. In the absence of data point, Qatium applies global machine learning models to to estimate demand patterns across the water distribution network.

Intelligent topology corrections - July 8, 2021

Thanks to advanced data science techniques, Qatium automatically adjusts and corrects topological data, including duplicate items, isolated elements, X and T crossings and more.

Simulate opening and closing pipes - June 3, 2021

Change the state of any pipe and close them without needing to add a valve. Each pipe opening and closure runs a new simulation and generates updated water flow and network pressure data.
