UNESCO has selected EOMAP products to support global water quality assessment for the International Initiative on Water Quality (IIWQ) of UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme (IHP). EOMAP is a world leader in optical remote sensing in the aquatic sector, ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Bavaria alumni and multiple winner of the Copernicus Masters, Europe’s leading Erath observation competition. The brand-new portal is part of EOMAP’s next-generation product range, delivering innovation through Earth-observation data solutions for businesses and governmental agencies around the world.
The comprehensive IIWQ World Water Quality Portal will assist with global water quality assessment and capacity building for streams, lakes and rivers. The launch takes place at UNESCO Headquarters on 22 January 2018 and an exhibition on “Satellite-based Water Quality Monitoring” will be available from 22-26 January 2018.
