Duero Water Framework Directive

Management of the information existing and generated in the Hydrological Planning Office of the Confederación Hidrográfica del Duero.


The Planning Office needs an Information System for adequate storage and management of all the information with which they work.

The solution consists of two basic parts; alphanumeric management of the information, i.e., the entities and the attributes characterizing them, and geographical management, locating them geographically.

The system includes all the attributes needed for proper characterization, so that the chosen management models and simulation tools can be applied to the data.

The main entities the system manages are rivers, lakes, reservoirs, dams, sluices, canals, underground water, surface and underground reserves, bathing areas, fish-protection areas, places of EC Interest, sensitive areas, vulnerable areas, areas of special protection of birdlife, etc.
