Spatial Vision partnered with energy company Snowy Hydro Limited to create the “Snowy Live” app for phones and tablets.

Integrated with Snowy Hydro’s data, the app enables Apple users to access lake level, snow depths and water release information in real-time, wherever they are.

Snowy Hydro operates within the iconic Snowy Mountains, a popular tourist destination and valuable agricultural region in New South Wales. They schedule controlled water releases to meet the energy needs of the National Electricity Market, potentially affecting lake and river levels. Snowy Hydro also manages a number of snow fields and provides updates on snow depths throughout the snow season.

The app provides water level information for three lakes, Eucumbene, Jindabyne and Tantangara and water release data for three dams, Jindabyne, Tantangara and Khancoban. It provides snow depths for Spencers Creek, Deep Creek and Three Mile Dam. To make the app more convenient, since most people will only be interested in one lake, dam or snow field at a time, we ensured users could select the lake(s) or dam(s) or field(s) they are most interested in and ‘favourite’ them.
