Project description

The department of Natural Resources and Environment (DONRE) in the province Lam Dong, Vietnam has the responsibility for the quantitative and qualitative monitoring of ground- and surface water. This includes the identification of areas, where water has deteriorated as a result of anthropogenic influences by over fertilization, industry or landfill. As DONRE makes regular measurement and sampling campaigns, a large amount of data has been accumulated quickly.

In order, to manage these data amount efficiently, ribeka was commissioned to install the resource management system GW-Base® at DONRE. ribeka trained the DONRE staff on the GW-Base-System and right at the beginning, ribeka performed the data analysis and deployment in Lam Dong on the project side at DONRE.

For the current project the software support is provided by ribeka, Germany.

The whole project is conducted in close cooperation with the german Ruhr University Bochum and financially supported through the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, Berlin).
