Welcome to the TWIGA Initiative

TRANSFORMING WATER, WEATHER, and CLIMATE INFORMATION THROUGH IN SITU OBSERVATIONS for GEO-SERVICES in AFRICA

TWIGA was a project under EU Horizon2020 aimed to transform weather water data into value-added information services.

Our Objective

The aim of the TWIGA project was  to provide currently unavailable geo-information on weather, water, and climate for sub-Saharan Africa by enhancing satellite-based geo-data with innovative in-situ sensors and developing related information services that answer needs of African stakeholders and the GEOSS community.

The Problem

Few places on Earth are served worse with geo-information than Africa

Potential

The potential value of Geo-information services in Africa is extremely large and we saw more could be done and made an active decision to act on it

Our Ambition

Our ambition was to fill this information gap by first enhancing satellite-based geodata with innovative in situ sensors and development of actionable information services based on this geodata

Our success drivers ?

Citizen Science

A systematic feedback loop to reciprocally validate in situ measurements and satellite data in one integrated model. Over 500 in situ measurement stations using citizen science.

Team of Experts

At the forefront of our innovation and services were a dedicated team of experts from credible fields and institutions putting in work together to develop sustainable products and services

Our research & Developments

Combinations of in situ observations, satellite products, and models are well beyond the state-of-the-art, not just in Africa but for any continent. We develops complete value chains

Our Legacy & Impact

TWIGA was a 4-year project (2018 – 2021) under EU Horizon2020 aimed to transform weather water data into value-added information services.

The TWIGA Portal

The TWIGA portal is the central platform through which many of the data and services are flowing. Users can access the data through a comprehensive API or via the TWIGA portal. The portal is a web-based interface through which registered users can see and interact with the data.

Experienced users can create their own custom dashboards completely tailored to their own needs. However, in many cases, dashboards will be prepared and shared to new users, such that new users can directly interact with the data without needing detailed knowledge.
