Dinaric Karst (DIKTAS Project)

DIKTAS Information Management System (IMS)

This DIKTAS Information Management System (IMS) is a viewer that contains the results from the DIKTAS project. The viewer contains thematic maps on groundwater and groundwater related themes. The viewer is designed to provide information to a wide group of stakeholders, like groundwater users and those engaged in the management of the groundwater resources in the region. 

About the DIKTAS project

The DIKTAS project (Protection and Sustainable Use of the Dinaric Karst Transboundary Aquifer System), is the first ever attempted globally to introduce sustainable integrated management principles in a transboundary karst freshwater aquifer of the magnitude of the Dinaric Karst System. At the global level the project aims at focusing the attention of the international community on the huge but vulnerable water resources contained in karst aquifers (carbonatic rock formations), which are widespread globally, but poorly understood. The Dinaric Karst Aquifer System, shared by several countries and one of the world’s largest, has been identified as an ideal opportunity for applying new and integrated management approaches to these unique freshwater resources and ecosystems.
