Abstract

Nowadays, the increasing pressure over water resources is reflecting on the water quality all over the globe. Not surprisingly, local, and regional governments are taking initiatives into tackling this issue. However, the management of water resources requires coordinated management by the stakeholders, especially in cross-border regions, to achieve efficient regulations. Then, the data-sharing for monitoring the water resources is fundamental for the stakeholder participation in the process of knowledge building. This work presents the design and implementation of a collaborative web platform aiming at enhancing these processes applied to share water quality parameters maps produced under the framework of the SIMILE (Integrated monitoring system for knowledge, protection and valorisation of the subalpine lakes and their ecosystems) project. The platform takes advantage of open-source infrastructure and standards. The solution provides two web-based applications devoted to the upload/management (customized GeoNode) of the data and its visualization (WebGIS). The scope of the collaborative platform is to improve the access to information for awareness-building on the water resources in the Insubric area.
