About KISTERS North America
KISTERS develops environmental data management systems with advanced analytical software for integrated and long-term management of water quality and water resources. Leveraging more than 30 years of expertise in Water Information Systems, the firm supports hundreds of clients ranging from consulting engineers to governments of all sizes in the U.S. and Canada. Its software resolves data workflow challenges by securing and aligning varied data sources and formats, automating data quality control, as well as supporting robust analysis, reporting and sharing of information for data-driven operations, accurate forecasts and confident decisions.
As of 2020 globally recognized, innovative sensors and monitoring instruments for all aspects of the hydro-meteorological cycle are now provided in partnership with HSA | a KISTERS Group company. HSA introduced the non-contact (water) discharge radar in the U.S., which is transforming the measurement of water flow and flood forecasting. The global reputation for exacting design and manufacture is traced to high precision tipping bucket rain gauges and cableway towing devices.
KISTERS North America now combines proven data analytics software with highly reliable hardware, so your community can implement a advanced decision support system to solve your most complex hydro-meteorological challenges.
Water Information System by KISTERS (WISKI -- pronounced "whisky") is commercial software for multidisciplinary water time series data storage, analyses and distribution via web services or web portals. KISTERS works closely with public agencies to custom-configure the technology to unique needs of the organization. As more data sources are informing local governments, automated data collection, quality assurance protocols, and alerts to designated personnel ensure attention and response to potential threats of flooding or water contamination.
** Kindly note: we don't provide permitting software, which blends document management and ecommerce. **
Users have the ability to analyze and view data of different resolutions from continuous transmissions and discrete field visits, from satellites and ground-based sensors or in-stream data loggers. Data are displayed as graphs, charts or even map layers in Esri GIS software. The convergence of data improves collaboration and identifies actionable insights, especially as individual users can choose an interface that upholds organizational efficiency and respects personal needs. Depending on a government's cybersecurity needs, the IT solution can be installed on-premises or hosted in the cloud.
With strategic partner VanderSat, KISTERS provides Soil Moisture and Drought Information Service. The remote sensing data and analytics address bad data and help calibrate hydrologic models and decision-support systems that inform emergency management, reservoir/aquifer optimization and planning.
HSA | a KISTERS Group company provides Hydrological and Meteorological instrumentation for accurate adn precise measurement of water flow, water level and water quality. A deep portfolio of Meteorological sensors collect data on rain, hail and snow -- the last being critical for year-round water supplies. HSA specializes in non-contact radar consultation and supply for flood warning and forecasting as well as integrated hail systems that quantify and predict hail damage to large-scale assets such as solar farms. From single sensor to multi-sensor implementation, solutions across the spectrum are available.
