Rainfall Estimation Solutions

Robust solutions for handling and enhancing rainfall estimates and forecasts based upon cutting-edge research

Data Analytics

We use statistics and advanced computing technologies to turn rainfall and related variables into useful metrics to support decision making

Tackling Hydrometeorological Challenges

Aside from our core rainfall services, we develop bespoke solutions to meet client-specific hydrometeorological challenges requiring specialised computational and statistical skills

Why Rain++?

Reliable estimation, forecasting and analysis of rainfall and related hydro-meteorological variables are essential for effective and sustainable water resources and weather risk management.

Teamed with advances in statistical methods and computing technologies, increasingly available hydro-meteorological data offers a wealth of opportunities to improve the monitoring, analysis and management of water systems. However, this data is acquired from a variety of sources with varying quality, which often enhances the problem of how best to handle and make use of these datasets to inform decision making.

Rain++ offers tools and customised solutions to help address these challenges.

Our Products & Services

Core techniques: Based upon cutting-edge stochastic methods, geo-statistics and hydro-meteorological research, and making use of advanced computing technologies, Rain++ offers four core techniques for handling and enhancing rainfall estimates and forecasts:

Rainfall Data Combination

Our geostatistical methods integrate the advantages of data from multiple sensors.

Spatial/Temporal Rainfall Downscaling

Our stochastic methods generate rainfall estimates at the required scales.

Short-Term Weather Forecasting

Our tools, based on computer vision and machine learning, provide reliable forecasts.

Long-Term Rainfall Modelling

Our stochastic tools, combined with the latest climate projections, shed light upon future rainfall.

These techniques can be deployed as stand-alone or web-based services both for offline as well as real-time applications. Alternatively, they can be customised and embedded within the client’s operational system to meet operational requirements.

Bespoke solutions: At Rain++ we are happy to help you tackle other hydrometeorological challenges requiring specialised statistical, hydro-meteorological and computational skills. We have experience in projects ranging from weather insurance product design to operational system implementation. Check out our projects for more information.
