Innovyze Releases ICM TSDB, Enabling Real-Time Data and Event Management

New Time-Series Database Allows Users to Transform Real-Time and Historical Data and Events into Actionable Information for Comprehensive Urban and Rural Catchment Modeling

 

Broomfield, Colorado USA, February 19, 2013 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies, today announced the worldwide release of ICM TSDB. For the first time, this revolutionary time-series database for industry-leading InfoWorks ICM lets utilities archive, analyze and aggregate real-time and historical data, including radar images and meteorological forecasts, into user-defined actionable information. They can then use this data to drive simulations of past and future events for optimal management of urban and rural catchment systems.

Despite the widespread availability and use of 2D rainfall data and time-series network data (e.g., rain gauge, level gauge, flow gauge), collection system models are not continuously updated with real-time field and radar data. Their applications are therefore generally confined to offline analyses. While such analyses can provide useful information for network design and long-range capital planning applications, they lack the predictive accuracy critical to operational and emergency event management. ICM TSDB provides accurate network performance and operational information from real-time data, enabling engineers and operators to quickly and reliably assess the integrity of the network and respond to potential overflows, flooding and other non-routine events.

ICM TSDB extends the utility of smart network modeling to encompass real-time field and radar data-driven simulations and predictive forecasting capabilities. It brings all relevant data from disparate sources into a single system readily available for detailed analysis using InfoWorks ICM. This enables operators to detect problems before they become events, and gives them crucial time to react and reduce or eliminate the impacts of these events. Such advanced capabilities greatly enhance the ability of wastewater utilities and river authorities to predict flood risks, support cost-effective drainage management and online urban flooding forecasts, and improve drainage system operation.

ICM TSDB delivers a powerful combination of 2D rainfall data and time-series data, along with a suite of analytic and visualization tools that monitor the performance and capacity of collection systems. It gives users a comprehensive, real-time view into current system operations, enabling them to make informed, timely decisions. ICM TSDB provides:

  • Flexible import, storage and export of time-series data including import from existing InfoWorks ICM events
  • Import, storage and export of 2D rainfall data on a range of geometries (both Cartesian and Polar) with a variety of source formats
  • Visualization and animation of 2D rainfall data
  • Creation, storage and management of user edits of time-series data
  • Addition of missing data or deletion/change of invalid data
  • Creation of custom overrides of the base data (what-if scenarios)
  • Merging of externally-supplied, user-edited and recurrent time series for input to a simulation or comparison with simulation results
  • Interpolation of time-series data at various stages in the data flow
  • Combination of rain gauge profiles and 2D rainfall profiles for direct simulation, including time-dependent prioritization of sources
  • Ability to use non-regular time steps for time-varying data (e.g., inflows, levels)
  • Seamless integration with any InfoWorks ICM model

ICM TSDB elevates the standards for smart network modeling by enabling operational and engineering level integration throughout the utility organization,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President and Chief Operating Officer of Innovyze. “This critical software tool will allow utilities and river authorities to productively learn from past events as well as effectively monitor, forecast and better react to future events. These capabilities enable a new level of vulnerability assessment and collection system protection while reducing or eliminating property and environmental damages and safeguarding public health. This is another step in our ongoing commitment to delivering superior value to our customers who plan, design, manage, operate, and sustain safe, reliable water and wastewater infrastructure systems.”
