A GGIS is an interactive and transparent portal to groundwater-related information and knowledge.
The system is meant for various categories of stakeholders, including both professionals and the general public. The GGIS is simple to use and completely publicly accessible. It leads the user from aggregated, global information (Global Overview) via related information sources (Meta-Information Module) towards a direct information exchange (Collaborative Environment).
Global Groundwater Monitoring Network (GGMN) is the youngest and the most demanding GGIS module. Its purpose is to monitor a global change of groundwater resources.
IGRAC is currently developing its new Global Groundwater Information System (GGIS) and will launch this improved 2.0 version by the end of 2014. The accessibility, performance and user friendliness of the refurbished GGIS will be significantly improved while allowing for more interactive participation of its users.
