eWater: Multilingual cross-border access to ground water databases
Multilingual cross-border access to ground water databases
The main objective of the project is to increase the cross-border availability, accessibility and re-usability of data on quality, location and use of subsurface waters. Geo-data market research has shown that the groundwater (geo-hydrological) data is of great market demand, occupying the second position in the rating list immediately after the data on rock composition (lithology).
This data is currently stored in national databases and available exclusively for a national user in a local language. Therefore the geo-hydrological data across the national borders form separated, uncorrelated, not interoperable data sets. As the result much of the geo-hydrological spatial information is difficult to exploit in both international and national water management context.
In order to achieve the main objective the project will develop an Internet system that will provide cross-border multi-lingual access to ground water spatial data sets stored in the national databases of the participating countries. The developed eWater Web portal will serve as a common entrance and the meeting point for all those, who have stakes in cross-border management issues, including EC. The portal will primarily concern groundwater monitoring measurements, such as water level and chemical composition, as well as digital geo-hydrological and geological maps. A plan for the portal’s continued maintenance and augmentation will be developed in order to provide sustainability of the system after the end of the project.
