3. Service Description And Information

This web application handles information related to water infrastructure, consumption and footprint, and is aimed at the client-company, in SaaS mode.

This platform allows access to the water distribution and sanitation networks, as well as viewing hydraulic models, understood as the mathematical models used to understand and predict the expected behavior of the water network. For it:

  • The user has to upload a geographic or hydraulic model (EPANET or GIS).
  • The hydraulic model is calculated for the specific geographic area.
  • The software offers visualization of the result with representation of the water pressures in various units (mwc and psi), so that the meters of water column (mwc) is used for its measurement, corresponding to the meters that the water would lift. These visualizations are not real: they are based on theoretical data from the hydraulic model.

Hydraulic model calculations are set by Qatium, but can be viewed and inputs changed by the user.

Two ways of creating those inputs are offered:

  • With Qatium model build tools, once the user uploads their GIS files.
  • From the user’s own modelling platform, which will have to be uploaded and Qatium will continue to use it.

To simulate the hydraulic model, the networks can be real or drawn, and filters can be used to visualize them according to GIS levels or types of pipes.

In addition, Qatium offers a functionality based on sensors that give real values ​​of the water that passes through the pipes, showing the information that comes from said sensor.

Qatium will take on completing the necessary data that the user does not provide at the time they upload (such as pipe crossings, or the demand for water assigned to an area).

Users have the option of sharing data with other users, in order to prevent the same company-client from repeatedly uploading the same networks. To carry out its control, a unique ID will be established per company-client.

The networks uploaded by a user will only be accessible to him, or to those with whom he shares them with, so that the data will be safe. In any case, Qatium reserves the right to use this data from uploaded networks, with the sole purpose of improving the operation of the system.
