Supporting water-related planning processes
Independent Dutch institute Deltares has launched a new online platform called BlueEarth Data to bring together multiple water datasets in a single, free environment.
Using the platform, users can view, inspect and download operational and historic water-related data on oceans, coasts and rivers to support water-related planning processes.
The organisation said it has been developed because “flood risks are often underestimated and poorly managed due to the lack of data, particularly in less-developed regions”.
Deltares recently won Water Europe’s ‘Digital Water Award’ for developing a smartphone app to measure and share nitrate levels in groundwater.
