The difficulty of access to water data is the main limitation for the completion of an expert study on water. Spatial Data on Water draws on the author’s extensive experience and a wide range of academic materials to resolve this topical issue.

The book is divided into three chapters: theoretical principles, a technical framework and case studies. The first chapter provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of the basic information which is indispensable to readers. The second, technical, chapter presents various international pilot initiatives for the development of water information systems and also establishes an architectural model for setting up a spatial data infrastructure for water based on international norms and standards. This theoretical and technical approach is supported by the case studies presented in the final chapter.

This book presents a practical guide that will meet the needs of professionals working in the field of water resources management.


1. Theoretical Framework.
2. Technical Framework: Spatial Data Infrastructure for Water.
3. Case Studies.
