Recap of KISTERS User Group Meeting, KUG 2010

September 29, 2010

Clients explain use of our enterprise IT solutions to manage various water data applications.

2010 marked the fifth year of the KISTERS’ users group meetings in North America. This year’s events celebrated past and present indicators of success.

Between the two meetings, a total of 15 customers presented how they currently use our enterprise IT solutions to address all types of data management needs which vary from agency to organization. Presentations explained how to perform sediment computations or to configure contamination warning systems.

The main users group meeting was held in Orlando, Florida at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

A separate Hydstra users meeting convened in southern California at the Ventura County Watershed Protection District. Attendees appreciated new insights regarding our products and exchanging ideas with other hydrological professionals.

We’d like to thank our feature presenter Harry House of the U.S. Geological Society for an informative presentation on how the USGS Center for Integrated Data Analytics (CIDA) 1 currently uses Water Information Systems KISTERS (WISKI) for data integration and future use.

1 Note: The Center for Integrated Data Analytics (CIDA) no longer exists as an organizational unit with the USGS. Its employees are now part of the USGS Water Resources Mission Area. Questions about CIDA can be directed to Morgan Schneider at moschnei [at] usgs [dot] gov.
