Planning for the weather?

NIWA is developing an environmental forecasting service, EcoConnect, which provides subscribers with continually updated forecasts of weather-driven hazards such as flooding, suitable for port companies, regional councils, energy companies, and other customers.

EcoConnect combines real-time data from NIWA's satellite reception systems & environmental monitoring networks, with sophisticated computer modelling and advanced climate analysis tools. In October 2007, an international expert review panel assessed the modelling systems which underpin EcoConnect as world class.
