C++ Interface for HydroSHEDS data

Initial Problem

Moving from model problems to real world applications can be a challenging task in numerical simulation. Data sources have to be read, processed and integrated with existing interfaces. This project wants to enhance a currently developed simulation code for coupled surface/subsurface flow simulations by integrating geographic data about river and lake networks.

What we do

This project is worked on by three B.Sc./M.Sc. students (Softwarepraktikum für Anfänger) under supervision of the SSC.

We aim to:

  • Read the datasets from HydroSHEDS
  • Provide C++ interfaces to access data set features
  • Adhere to the sustainable development principles that the SSC stands for

The ongoing development work can be followed on GitHub.
