Rainfall overlay, part of the water module

The water module in the Tygron Platform is intended to simulate the movement of (liquid) water in the project area, and the impact of this movement. The water module is based on (combinations of) different benchmarks and formulas.

The Water Module is implemented as different grid based water overlays, where each overlay is tuned for specific analyses, insights, use cases and results.
