Example of the construction of a case study

Take into account the following recommendations:

On this page you will find a description of the elements used in the construction of a case study for users to take as an example. Remember that a case study is built from data of water intakes, treatment plants and the objectives you want to achieve through the implementation of the NbS. Here's why: 

  • WaterProof relies on the geographic location of water intakes to suggest a basin area in which the NbS will be implemented
  • Details of the elements and technologies that are part of the infrastructure of the water intakes and treatment plants are required, because it is assumed that when the NbS are implemented there are a series of savings in the maintenance and operation costs of the infrastructure.

Please follow the steps below:

Water intakes

See the elements of the water intake example.

Treatment plants

See the processes and technologies that are part of the case study.

Case studies

See how different concepts are articulated in the case study.

Water intakes

Define the location  

The example is supported by a water intake located at latitude 7.0740 and longitude -73.0697. The graphic shows the screen in which the water intake name and location were indicated.

Notice that the delimited watershed is shown by analyzing the DEM for the area. WaterProof uses traditional spatial analysis algorithms to delineate watersheds from digital elevation models.
