We create forward-thinking solutions to manage, forecast, and control our most valuable natural resources. Inspyr’s data scientists, GIS specialists, marine biologists, ecologists, biotechnicians, geneticists, acousticians, scientific systems engineers, oceanographers, science writers, web and social media developers, data modelers, observers, policy and regulatory experts, and outreach and education professionals contribute directly to our understanding of our world’s living marine resources, and promote and sustain a healthy economy and natural environment for generations to come.
Scientific Data Analytics
The increasing abundance of climatological, hydrological, and remote sensing ‘big’ environmental data in the public domain nowadays calls for enhanced data analysis, data handling, data management and data integration methodologies to translate scientific data to knowledge products that are informative, intuitive, understandable and supportive in water resources decision making. Inspyr knows what data is available, how to access it, and how to translate data into useful integrated products. We can combine data with objective-specific hydrological simulation models in hydroinformative products. We are specialized in visualizing and converting complex results of numerical models to comprehensible information for policy makers.
We specialize in the automation of data display capabilities to efficiently process large quantities of data. Our team is constantly developing new and innovative display capabilities to illustrate data through informative, accurate, and easy to understand mediums.
Our developers have pioneered state-of-the-art data management and visualization techniques of datasets for the National Weather Service. The short-range configuration of the National Water Model produces over 1 billion streamflow data points per day, requiring the use of cutting-edge technologies and the development of novel solutions. Tasks in this project include the development of an automation pipeline that watches and downloads the latest forecasts, initiates post-processing on the datasets, and updates spatial web services with the resulting visualizations in near-real time.
Numerical Modeling Development
Inspyr has broad experience developing and supporting numerical prediction models that use mathematical representations of the atmosphere, oceans and land surface to predict the weather and hydrologic response based on current weather conditions.
This expertise includes Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. Our team is adept at manipulating the very large datasets and performing the complex calculations necessary for modern numerical prediction, techniques that often require use of powerful supercomputers. The Inspyr team excels at mathematical modeling of all facets of the weather and hydrologic sciences from rainfall-runoff, to hydrodynamic routing, to water quality to controlled systems. Our entire team has great experience working with federal, state, and local governments on a variety of numerical prediction and water modeling projects.
An example of the provided numerical modeling that Inspyr has successfully deployed is groundwater analysis. Inspyr provides groundwater modeling services to a range of clients across the US. Our modeling experts have a strong scientific background to support the nuanced decision-making that comes with model selection. Our groundwater models are designed to obtain information on sources of recharge, estimates of recharge rates, flow paths, flow rates, sources of solutes, surface water/groundwater interactions and vulnerability assessments
