Transparently Mapping the World's Groundwater Resources

CRITICAL GROUNDWATER INSIGHT MADE AFFORDABLE

Lack of real-time groundwater data is causing unsustainable groundwater use across the globe. WaterMappers mission is to change this by mapping the world’s groundwater resources.

 

SUBDOWSER

“Well Sensors powered by Whysor”

WaterMapper Sensor

Buy data not hardware!

For only 35 USD/Euro a month, water level and temperature data is delivered on a hassle free dashboard.

•We will only charge you if groundwater data is delivered reliably and will replace sensors as fast as possible if they stop working. 

•We are currently shipping our easy-to-install sensors for free month-long pilots anywhere around the world where there is a reliable cellular data network and Fed Ex or DHL delivers.  We are open to all pilot partners. 

•Our sensors are developed, manufactured and monitored by Whysor, a proven environmental sensor company based in Holland. Whysor currently has 3k plus environmental IOT sensors deployed across 4 continents.

QUALITY tESTING

Water Quality

Water Mappers partners with GoSimple Labs in the United States to offer periodic water quality lab testing to all clients.  Tests can be purchased on a one-time basis for $210 or added onto you monthly level sensor payment at a rate of $17.50 per month per test. Logistics is easy and all data will be accessible on your customizable online dashboard. Click here to see a sample water quality report.

 

-Water Quality Tests include measurements and alerts for:

-92 Heavy Metals
-2 Fertilizers
-25 Properties
-8 Bacteria
-13 Non-Metal Inorganics
-6 Calculated Parameters

THE R&D PIPELINE

Affordable wider-spread water level and temperature data is only just the beginning. A truly actionable ground water map would combine widespread relevant multiple parameter data (IE conductivity, PH, arsenic etc) and real time, affordable aerial groundwater scanning and satellite data.

WaterMappers is currently developing:

1) Multiple parameters real-time sensors -> conductivity ready Q1 2023 

2) Digitized real-life ground water modeling 

3) Skydowser – Drone based sensor

FLOOD WARNING SySTEM

While groundwater is our primary focus, real time water level data sensors can also be installed in PCV piping in lakes, rivers, and ponds. We can then link our data system to rapid widespread SMS platforms to serve as an early flood warning system for relevant officials or the public at large. Please contact us if you are interested in using our affordable systems for this life-saving function.
