Simplify sample data management & celebrate watershed health with your community
Over the past 40 years we’ve been developing data management software, we’ve worked closely with in-field technicians and in-office water quality managers to overcome barriers to both data collection, access and use.
Within WISKI, the water quality module KiWQM enhances the comprehensive management, assessment and reporting of discrete environmental sampling activities.
The same system equitably offers data managers a seamless flow of quality data from discrete sampling events and continuous monitoring networks. Water quality specialists now have the same options to achieve a high level of automation, quality control, data visualization, analysis and decision support.
On whatever timescale you monitor the water, environment or weather, our IT innovations help your organization align your datasets and add value to the data chain, from collection and processing to reporting.
All-in-one planning, storage, analytics & reporting software
Ensure datasets work together in a single system: sampling data & hydrological information, discrete & continuous, ground-based & satellite sensing, and more. Manage data for multiple or one specific project, especially over a long-term period.
Sample scheduling & chain of custody management tools
Efficiently manage the CoC from sampling to receiving EDD. Plan routine & ad hoc sampling events with a calendar. Enjoy faster review of compliant monitoring locations & water chemistry results with user-defined color coding.
Quality control & alert automation complemented by graph-based manual editing
Validate & correct data values, or or assign quality flags in bulk. After getting notifications about data gaps or exceedances, use graph visualization to manually review, edit data & justify changes.
Unlimited storage of monitoring data & metadata
Collect extensive amounts of meta data on a per sample basis, including GIS coordinates, sampling depths, images and video taken in the field. Custom-configure the commercial software to meet specific needs for your organization.
Seamless integration with KISTERS water quality sensors & probes
Integrate rugged, low-maintenance optical sensors & precision probes from our portfolio with our water quality management system.
Develop a holistic understanding of your watershed
When all your water data works together, you can focus on science-based management of ecosystems supported by quantity data from all monitoring, protection & restoration efforts.
Automate quality control & control lab costs
Automate QA/QC to verify spot samples with lab orders & results from electronic data deliverable (EDD). KISTERS data acquisition tool also overcomes time-consuming formatting challenges during import.
Improve data quality & efficiency
Perform more QA/QC, en masse or manually, to distill data of the highest quality. Graph visualization, color- & texture/pattern-coding, and quality codes facilitate trend identification and alert to suspect data.
Calculate & share environmental health report cards with the public
The same calculation engine that crunches advanced calculations & aggregated statistics on data, including pollutant loads, can compute & report environmental health scores.
Meet Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) requirements
User-configurable & extensive meta data storage help meet rigorous QAPP criteria. Trace calendars, staff, devices & calibration to document & confidently report qualified sampling events and results.
Scalable to your needs
Organizations who rely on WISKI range from not-for-profit organizations to federal government laboratories. Staff size doesn’t matter. It’s the amount and use of information that determines if this solution is right for you.
Whether the extent of your IT resources is a desktop computer or your own data center, we believe you should have access to best-in-class comprehensive data management for water, weather and environmental resources. We offer a few licensing options which can be discussed.
Discover for yourself why this commercial IT solution is often configured to distinct needs of agencies, utilities and research institutes to achieve their water data management priorities around the globe.Download brochure
Success Stories Water, Weather & Environment
Water quality monitoring instruments
Multi-parameter water quality probes
Rugged and compact, these probes excel in-situ in the environment as well as in harsh wastewater or industrial water systems. HyQual probes provide reliable, stable and repeatable results. These models are simple to calibrate, implement and use either for continuous monitoring or spot measurement. We stand behind their exceptional quality, offering free extended warranty of 3 years.
NICO nitrate sensor
These submersible UV photometers measure nitrate (NO3) or total nitrogen NOx concentrations. Four detection channels enable a precise optical determination of nitrate by absorption, turbidity and organic substances. An internal temperature correction feature increases the stability of measurements. Standardized spare parts, consumables and accessories ensure this nitrate-specific optical sensor is cost-effective.
OPUS nitrogen and carbon sensor
These new generation of UV spectral sensors are designed to measure nitrogen and carbon with a 0.8 nm/pixel resolution. A full-spectrum analysis of organic substances delivers precise measurements of nitrate (NO3-N), nitrite (NO2-N) and several parameters including chemical oxygen demand (CODeq), biochemical oxygen demand (BODeq), dissolved organic carbon (DOCeq), and total organic carbon (TOCeq).
