Definition of sets of correlation events (used by correlation module only)

schema location

The correlation module in DELFT-FEWS allows forecasts for a downstream location to be established using a correlation of peak events for the forecast site and one or more support sites. For each river multiple correlations between several sites on the river may be defined. Correlation sets can be defined to allow logical ordering these into logical groups. This configuration file defines the groups for which correlation event data will be later defined.

When available on the file system, the name of the XML file for configuring the CorrelationEventSetsDescriptors is for example:

CorrelationEventSetsDescriptors 1.00 default.xml

Fixed file name for the CorrelationEventSetsDescriptors configuration

1.00                                            Version number

default                                       Unit to indicate the version is the default configuration (otherwise omitted).

Figure 49 Elements of the CorrelationEventSetsDescriptors configuration


Root element of the CorrelationEventSetsDescriptor. New element is required for each CorrelationEventSet identified. Multiple instances may be defined.


  • Id: Id of the CorrelationEventSet. This Id must be unique. Normally a string is used that gives some understanding of the group created (e.g.Severn).
  • name: Optional name for the CorrelationEventSet. Used for reference purposes only.
