Water Quality Monitoring (WQ)

EO Mapping Services


Water quality monitoring services by EOMAP provide temporal and spatial information on key parameters. These give valuable insights into the ecological status, dynamics and trends of inland and marine waters. Key parameters for EOMAP water quality assessments include turbidity, suspended matter, chlorophyll-a, harmful algae bloom and trophic state classification.

Our satellite-based monitoring services are a stand-alone, harmonised multi-scale and long-term information source. They can be combined with traditional in-situ monitoring data to map aquatic ecosystems.

EOMAP’s water quality service stands out by its high operational level, is based on the use of multiple satellite sensors and cutting-edge algorithms. We thus deliver quantitative, harmonised geospatial information from all parts of the world.

You can rely on data from monthly to daily intervals and on a spatial resolution from kilometer grid spacings down to few meters. We provide reports, easy to use web portals and customised solutions to help you access, visualise and manage all the information you need.

With eoapp AQUA, you have a fully operational, extremely user-friendly processing system at hand. This browser-based application allows registered users to do their own water quality processing in the EOMAP cloud, using our latest state-of-the-art algorithms.

    How can I request information for a specific site?
    Simply send your area of interest in digital format to our water quality team or use our contact form. You’ll receive appropriate feedback within 24hours.

    How far back in time are satellite derived water quality measurements available?
    Records from Earth observation satellites go back more than 30 years. Using transferable processing technologies, we can generate water quality information from this historical data.  The quality and resolution of the information might be lower for older satellite sensors compared with current systems.

    How is the accuracy in comparison to in situ data?
    Our extensive validation report showcases world-wide validation exercises for different types of water bodies.
