Fostering a citizen science system

The societal project led by CNES and the Adour-Garonne Water Agency aims to raise awareness of hydrology-related issues by involving people in the routine monitoring of water levels in mountain lakes and rivers in France. In order to answer the request of the CNES and the Adour-Garonne Water Agency, vorteX.io has set up its autonomous and intelligent water level measurement service in addition to the installed water level rules, in order to ensure the continuity of the measurements during the year.

I was looking for a simple way to make available to school children and citizens information about the water level on the Garonne at Muret. […]. The team fully met my expectations – after a quick phone call, they analyzed the situation, managed the file from start to finish and within 7 days of the request, I had the data online on the server. Congratulations to them and thank you!

The service is operational since January 2021 on the Garonne River in Muret. New micro-stations will be deployed throughout the project in various contexts.
