Informatics PhD student publishes 1st author paper in Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards

PhD student in informatics Muhammed Ali Sit has published a 1st author paper in the journal Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards.

His project project demonstrates how watershed delineation problem could be solved both on server-side and client-side using various web technologies and programming languages. It also presents a client-side general-purpose GPU algorithm to analyze high-resolution terrain data for watershed delineation by benefiting from the parallelizable nature of GPUs.

Iowa Well Forecasting System

Iowa Well Forecasting System (IWFoS), is a web-based tool that enables homeowners and well drillers to forecast ground well depths using historic ground well data as well as letting them access to water quality tests collected by Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

IWFoS project was covered on Daily Iowan, Iowa Public Radio and Iowa Environmental Focus.
