Abstract—In order to make an effective flood forecasting and flood warning system, real-time hydro-meteorological data must be collected and transmitted to a control centre for analysis and processing. There are many ways to get this data from remote hydrological monitoring stations such as via a satellite link, sensor networks, telephone, fax, radio or via mobile phone networks. This paper describes how to collect and transmit timely hydrological data using GPRS (General Pocket Radio Service) via a mobile phone network from remote hydrological stations to the data centre in the case of the Lower Mekong River Basin (LMRB).
