WaterProtect Reporting tool for geospatial analysis and reporting of monitoring data

An important part of the sustainable use of plant protection products is an efficient monitoring and reporting towards environmental authorities. The WaterProtect Reporting tool is a web tool for geospatial analysis of monitoring data of plant protection products in groundwater and surface water and is a highly efficient application for follow-up and reporting. 

  • Geospatial analysis of plant protection products residues
  • Visualisation of monitored results in surface water and groundwater
  • Easy reporting merging monitoring data from environmental authorities

The tool visualizes time series of concentrations of plant protection products in one integrated view, based on the monitored results in surface water and groundwater for a region or for a country.

Evaluation of monitored concentrations
WaterProtect Reporting also gives an evaluation of the measured concentrations in comparison to user-defined environmental quality standards, to extract statistics and to generate trend analyses.

Furthermore, there are functionalities to help with the interpretation of measured concentrations. For each surface water monitoring point, maps of the upstream catchment boundary and the yearly agricultural land-use at the parcel level can be viewed.

VITO developed the WaterProtect Reporting Tool Belgium for a task force of the plant protection industry merging monitoring data from two regional environmental authorities (VMM and DGARNE) into a uniform database.

The tool also generates pdf-reports for a country, a region or a specific location, including statistics and graphs of the monitoring data, trend analysis, land-use coverage and water quality exceedances. The webtool provides restricted monitoring data access to the substance registration holder via a private login.
