Data Points a Day
When we started HydroPoint, we understood that eliminating 95% of irrigation waste with a weather based controller meant we needed the best site-specific weather data in the industry. We also saw how weather plays a role in leaks and water usage for buildings.
Each day, our Climate Center ingests over eight million weather data points from around the world, including over 50,000 US weather stations and hundreds of thousands of other data sources, from aircraft to radio buoys and weather sensors around the globe.
We continually import this data into our high performance computing system. Our computers run an energy balanced weather model at high speed. The model has been customized to calculating temperature, wind, humidity and solar radiation for every square kilometer of the continental US and every 100 meters for Hawaii.
By using big data and the cloud to calculate weather data, specifically evapotranspiration, our customers get all the benefits of site-specific weather data without all of the expense and single point of failure an onsite weather station entails. Weather stations are expensive or inaccurate, and if not properly maintained and calibrated can be both. You also need to factor in the cost of installation and replacement due to vandalism or routine wear.
This is a just one example of how HydroPoint uses new technology to save our customers water, time and money.
