Moving forward, development around Lekan is now focused on a server version and also on the development of a Python API allowing for more advanced uses, such as automating data retrieval, parameterization, and hydrological/hydraulic model solving through scripts.
The idea is to enable the implementation of autonomous, customizable, and controllable systems, for example, for flood forecasting, automated data processing over time, and so on.
The diagram below represents the organization on which such a system could be based.
As input, the system accesses databases of digital elevation models (DEM), rainfall data, land use, hydrometry, and so on…
The extraction and standardization of this data will then allow processing by different hydrological or hydraulic models/processes. Note that an interface could allow for the integration of external processes, whether they are open source or proprietary.
