Check last year's water quality in your favourite bathing spot
With WISE, users can check the water quality on an interactive map. They can also select a country or a region, download the data for their selection and make comparisons with previous years. The downloaded data can also be visualised in geospatial mapping programmes such as Google Earth and Microsoft Live maps.
WISE is a partnership between the European Commission (DG Environment, Joint Research Centre and Eurostat) and the European Environment Agency, closely collaborating with EU Member States. An annual assessment of the bathing water quality in the EU will be presented today by the European Commission.
