WaterFrame® - Watercourse information systems

Description of the product

Against the background of the requirements for the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) or the Drinking Water Directive (TWRL), but also due to the efficiency and quality potential of new IT technologies, the environment ministries of the German states of Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and Thuringia are working closely together to develop water information systems. Our components and tools of the WaterFrame® product line form the basis for this.
