Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing are useful tools in Hydrology. Water has position on earth’s surface. Water too is constantly in motion meaning water in its occurrence varies spatially and temporally throughout the Hydrological cycle. This makes the use of GIS and Remote Sensing (satellite technology) tools very necessary. Water Management Resources Authority (WRMA), Naivasha, continuously map and monitor evapo-transpiration, infiltration, surface water runoff, groundwater, precipitation, surface flows in; and still the same Water has to be visualized for example using maps.
Crucial in strengthening the capacity of WRMA and IMARISHA Naivasha is building up their technical ability to monitor, analyze and communicate key information on the state of the Lake Naivasha water resources. Water conservation and management of Lake Naivasha Basin requires sufficient capacity to monitor and manage the vital water resource. The University of Twente – ITC (www.itc.nl) continuously provide the technical training support to WRMA and IMARISHA Naivasha staff in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing as shown in the photo above.
