RVCA's Hydrological Information System (HIS) is based on the KISTERS product called WISKI (Water Information Systems KISTERS). It is a water data management software solution. WISKI automates data collection processes for faster analysis and better decisions, improves data quality, provides powerful visualization tools, and offers an easy way to report and share your hydrological data. WISKI is a powerful and flexible software solution that can manage all of your water data in one location.

Looking for RVCA Subwatershed and Catchment Reports? watersheds.rvca.ca
The RVCA produces individual reports on the Rideau watershed’s catchments. These catchment reports are a compilation of data collected through the RVCA’s watershed monitoring and land cover classification programs. Catchment information is used to develop subwatershed reports that summarize the health of the Rideau’s six main subwatersheds.
