Development of Satellite-based Precipitation Data Delivery System
  8th June 2012 / IFNet secretariat

Thanks to the financial support by JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) and RESTEC (Remote Sensing Technology Center) of Japan, IDI has developed the Satellite-based Precipitation Data Delivery System, which automatically provides satellite-monitoring precipitation data every hour both for the river basin and for the administrative district. It also notifies with different colors whether the accumulated precipitation in some river basin or district exceeds the pre-calculated probable precipitation with some return period (such as once in two-years, or once in five-years).

The trial version is now utilized by the Government of Thailand in order to prevent and to be well prepared for flood disasters during flood season this year.
The detailed information will be found on the below site.
