Intelligent River® Research Enterprise
The Intelligent River® Research Enterprise develops and operates hydrological observation systems to support research and provide real-time monitoring, analysis and management of water resources in South Carolina. The observation networks vary in purpose, scale and density of observation platforms and sensor types, but have a common need to be managed in real time with a well developed software and hardware architecture that is intended to provide 24/7 access to data and visualization products.
