The Delft-FEWS configuration guide provides the advanced user of DELFT-FEWS with the information required to set-up and maintain a configuration of Delft-FEWS. The objective of the guide is to be used both as a reference manual during the development and maintenance of an implementation of Delft-FEWS, as well as to provide some of the background philosophy on how to go about setting up a forecasting system. It is expected that the reader of this guide has a basic understanding of Delft-FEWS and its structure.
To understand how to configure Delft-FEWS, a good understanding of the structure of the configuration is required. The first part of this guide therefore gives an introduction into the different parts of configuration. In the second part of the guide the concepts used in Delft-FEWS for handling data are explained.
Section 3 gives details on configuration of system components such as display settings while section 4 describes the various regional configuration components which relate to a specific regional FEWS systems (e.g. monitoring locations). Section 5 provides documentation on the 'module instances' available in Delft-FEWS for example interpolation of data or how to configure an external model such as ISIS (using the General Adapter Module) including how these can be configured to achieve the required functionality.
Section 6 explains how configured modules are linked into logical tasks through configuration of workflows. In section 7 the configuration of user displays is discussed. Section 8 discusses mapping information from external data sources. Section 9 discusses handling of static module data. In section 10 some elements of configuring Delft-FEWS as an operational system are discussed.
In section 11 a brief introduction is given on how to set-up a forecasting system. This is to give some idea on how to approach configuring a complex system such as Delft-FEWS. A brief guide in the use of the configuration management module to support configuration is given in section 12. Section 13 details the additional functionality available in additional modules available through Delft-FEWS.
Section 14, finally, gives some tips and tricks on configuring Delft-FEWS.
