Rabat – A gathering on Water Information Systems will take place at the Faculty of Sciences of Rabat, in order to prepare for the meeting scheduled for the 20 & 21 March 2014.
The meeting will focus on Water Information Systems in the Mediterranean region.
Obviously, water is the most vital natural resource for our own survival, thus preserving it is crucial. Achieving this objective requires more involvement from water users and those participating in the management of water resources by raising awareness and providing information about this resource.
The key is the use of, Water Information System (WIS), which allows the following: the production, the collection, the archiving, the development, and the availability of data around this natural resource.
What is a WIS? What’s its composing? How can we implement it? What are the available technologies required for such a system? What are the existing experiences in this area? And what would be the opportunities and at the same time the limits of development?
The answer to these questions and many more will be given and explained by the Moroccan Association of Young Geometricians (MAYG) at the gathering organized under the theme of: “Water Information Systems: Innovations, Challenges and Prospects,” on Saturday, November 7th, 2013 at the Faculty of Sciences of Rabat, starting from 9am.
It should be noted that the MAYG is organizing this gathering, not only for a better exchange, but also to pave the way for the International Congress “WIS Med’s Day” (Water Information System Med Day’s) set in 2014.
