The Netherlands has 21 water boards that collect location data from Limburg to Groningen. So much data, in fact, that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to bring this management and maintenance data together and share it with each other and their partners. In order to prevent the water boards from drowning in their own data, the Waterschapshuis - the umbrella organization for water boards - asked Geodan to develop a single central counter for water data.
A watertight data overview
The 21 water boards in our country make sure that we have dry feet and sufficient clean water. The Central Distribution Layer developed by Geodan - a single central counter for water data - combines all of their location data. This lets the water boards and their partners - such as ProRail, municipalities, and provincial governments - find the exact status of all dikes, locks, and pumping stations.
