The innovative nature of our approach for addressing water quality assessment and management lies in the use of information technology for the storage, contextualization, processing and reporting of spatiotemporal water quality data from various sources, with the aim of using the resulting information in a decision support context.
Our Water quality monitoring database offers advanced capabilities in data collection, contextualization and analysis, as well as spatial interactivity (with geographic information systems), and information aggregation and sharing features.
