QUINTERO, Wilmer; ROBLES, Carlos A  and  VILORIA, Adolfo M. Information System for Flash Flood Detection in the Manzanares River Basin in Santa Marta, Colombia. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.6, pp.95-102. ISSN 0718-0764.

This paper presents an information system that processes the installed equipment data to monitor soil moisture, precipitation and water level of the Manzanares River, as part of a program for the early warning of flash flood in the Manzanares River Basin in Santa Marta, Colombia. The system detects flash floods and emits three types of alert, yellow, orange and red, depending on the level of the river. For technological development, Java Enterprise Edition was used, in conjunction with programming interfaces such as Google Maps, Google Cloud Messaging, Google Play Services and a relational database to store information. The results demonstrate the importance of information systems as a tool to alert communities at risk of flooding.

Keywords : information system; programming interface; early warning system; flood risk; Java platform enterprise edition.
