Geo-information is of essential importance for water management. Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), Delta planning and asset management for water utilities need knowledge on GIS and management of spatial data. In the education at IHE Delft and in our capacity development and research projects open source software and open data are increasingly used.
This webinar presented different activities of IHE Delft related to open source software and open data. Important open data resources (remote sensing and GIS data) that exist for IWRM will be discussed. During the seminar it was demonstrated how water sector organisations and knowledge institutes can share data using spatial data infrastructures (SDIs). Challenges and opportunities related to sharing of GIS data were discussed.
