Using Big Data Analytics to Proactively Identify and Communicate Aquifer Risks (#207)

March 15, 2015

​This one-day workshop will provide you with a foundational understanding of how big data analytics can be applied to aquifer risk management. The importance of proactively identifying and communicating aquifer risks continues to grow in line with the demand globally for freshwater. Concurrently with this increasing demand for freshwater, the amount of data being collected electronically has grown exponentially. Fortunately, the technologies enabling us to manage this voluminous data continue to evolve beyond the hype into a viable option complementing traditional data management systems.
