The Introduction of Domestic Telemeter Classes

The Content of Project

The project of “the Application of Telemeter And Its Relevant Techniques on the Management of Water Resource”, which has been performed since May 1, 1996, is promoted by the Units such as the Water Resource Office, Water Conservancy Bureau, Tao-Yuan Farm Water Conservancy Association, United Taiwan Province, Taichung Farm Water Conservancy Association, Taiwan Province, Gaoxiong Farm Water Conservancy Association, Taiwan Province, and Qi-Xing Farming Irrigation Works Association, Taipei City. Chinese Taipei Committee International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, CTCID is delegated to perform this project in which with the amounts of $1,000,001 given by the name of Chinese Taipei Committee International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, CTCID and $750,000 contributed by the Trust Fund of Florida Important Contribution, “Taiwan R.O.C. Fund “, in which the total amount is $1,750,001, has been founded at University of Florida, Gainesville, IFAS. The purpose of it is to support the project of telemeter application by which 15 to 20 trainees selected in home each year go to University of Florida for short-term personal training without any fees. The training courses will basically be continues through this project by the way of offering a period of time for each year to train the national superior staffs of water conservancy. for a long term. However, for the purpose of training staffs, the two tasks, “the basic courses of domestic technique relevant to telemeter” and “ the selection of staffs for going abroad to accept training course of telemeter techniques” should be done, but for both of which some expenses such as teachers’ fees, publishing teaching materials, leasing the places and computers, are needed. And other expenses for something are also needed, like consulting each year’s training contents with University of Florida, arranging tour routes and visits as well as receiving and sending trainees abroad. Therefore, these affairs expenses will be applied to each administrative unit.

Last year (2005), in addition to perform administrative affairs relevant to Taiwan R.O.C. Fund, home and abroad training courses according to the contents of the project have also been managed, expecting to train excellent staffs for the farming irrigation works. The courses of “2005 Personal Training for Telemeter and its High Technology on Management of Water Resources” were given at University of Florida last year, in which 15 trainees recommended by each water conservancy authorities and academic unit took part; and the training courses of “Technology foundations relevant to telemeter” were held at the experimental lab of water works, Taiwan University and tours to “Liu-Gong Farming Irrigation Works Association” and “Du-Zi Island” were taken for visiting the application of telemeter technology on farming irrigation works and monitoring of each pumping station, the efficiency of control, with 26 trainees participating. Each trainee from every unit was very eager, and the interaction between the trainees and the professionals in the courses was very great and the gains they had were also rich. Table 1 below is the statistic list for the recent 5 years of domestic training classes and abroad training ones.

In order to continue the handling of domestic and abroad training of telemeter management staffs, the contents of the project will combine with domestic related research units and “Taiwan R.O.C. Fund” to promote remote sensing, RS, Geographic information System, GIS, Global Positioning System, GPS and its application studies on ministering and controlling floods and droughts in relevant fields of farm water resources, complying with computer software systems with high technology and the modes for investigation in the real fields, allowing the training works to reach study points with the equal emphasis on theories and practicality, and assisting the domestic units relevant to water resources in promoting the practicality on water resources in Taiwan and training superior staffs for farming irrigation works The following is the objective of project for this year:

1. The Objective of This Year

(1)
To hold The Domestic Technique Basic Courses on farming irrigation works Relevant to Telemeter:
 
Technical staffs from each unit of farm water conservancy are recommended to the units relevant to technique research to learn basic theories of telemeter and its related techniques, and accept operation training for the applicable software, making a necessary preparation for participating in the training course offered by “Taiwan R.O.C. Fund” each year at University of Florida.
(2)
To Select outstanding staffs from farm farming irrigation works - to go to University of Florida and join the training courses of telemeter techniques provided by “Taiwan R.O.C. Fund”.
 
The executive units will continue to manage the training courses for telemeter staffs according to the cooperation between Taiwan and the United States and select domestic outstanding staffs on farming irrigation works to study something relevant to “the Application of Farming Irrigation Works on telemeter management”, collect the related technical literature and view at the real field the technical efficiency of application of farm farming irrigation works on telemeter in the advanced countries.
(3)
To Promote Technical Interaction Relevant to Telemeter Applications
 

The executive units will continue to manage the training courses for telemeter staffs according to the cooperation between Taiwan and the United States and select domestic outstanding staffs on farming irrigation works to study something relevant to “the Application of Farming Irrigation Works on telemeter management”, collect the related technical literature and view at the real field the technical efficiency of application of farm farming irrigation works on telemeter in the advanced countries.

The Qualification Main Points for Selection of Professional Staffs on Water Conservancy to Accept Telemeter Techniques Abroad Managed by Chinese Taipei Committee International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, CTCID(2006)
1.
This qualification of selection is particularly made by the Chinese Taipei Committee International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, CTCID ( referred to the Committee below) which selects the professional technicians to study at University of Florida in order to learn the application of high technology on water resources and train the outstanding staffs on water conservancy.
2.
The Qualification of Selection Resource
 

The executive units will continue to manage the training courses for telemeter staffs according to the cooperation between Taiwan and the United States and select domestic outstanding staffs on farming irrigation works to study something relevant to “the Application of Farming Irrigation Works on telemeter management”, collect the related technical literature and view at the real field the technical efficiency of application of farm farming irrigation works on telemeter in the advanced countries.The suitable candidates are first recommended by the Water Conservancy Office, Ministry of Economic Affairs, The Agriculture Committee of Executive Yuan, Tao-Yuan Farm Irrigation Works Association, Taiwan Province, Taizhong Farm Irrigation Works Association, Taiwan Province, Gaoxiong Farm Irrigation Works Association, Taiwan Province, Qi-Xing Farm Irrigation Works Association, Taipei City, and secondly by the members of the Committee.
