Scientists of the East Kazakhstan Technical University named after D. Serikbayev has developed a flood forecasting system and an agronomist's tablet, reports with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The electronic resource will allow monitoring and forecasting the flood situation in real time. The system contains digital, coordinate and cartographic data of infrastructure facilities.

“On the rivers of the East Kazakhstan region, the threat of flooding of settlements and residential buildings periodically arises. Therefore, we were faced with the task of developing an integrated information and analytical system that would increase the efficiency of monitoring the water level in rivers and allow predicting seasonal floods. For accurate modeling of river hydraulics and possible flooding zones, we use the MIKE software package, as well as modern geographic information systems ArcGIS, QGIS, NextGIS. They make it possible to improve the quality of emergency forecasting. As a result, we receive detailed information necessary to prevent flood situations and flooding of settlements," - noted the scientist of EKTU, PhD Marzhan Toguzova.

University scientists have also created an agronomist's tablet. The technology will allow agronomists to monitor the situation in agricultural fields, based on which it is possible to take into account possible risks and take economically profitable solutions.

“Agronomist's Tablet” application is a universal application that is designed to work both indoors and in the field. It allows you to take advantage of portable electronics in agricultural work. The presence of archives - field history, maps, reference books and other documents - simplifies and speeds up the decision-making process by specialists. The application also contains information on the condition of agricultural fields, as well as recommendations for further planning of field work. This, in turn, will make it possible to increase production efficiency at the lowest cost,” said Valentina Kolpakova, Doctor of Technical Sciences.
