EEA / Microsoft partnership

It is 3 months old news, but I’ve found it very recently. In the middle of May 2008, European Environment Agency announced they signed a partnership with Microsoft. The aim of this collaboration is (or was) to create ‘’an environmental information platform’’ based on Microsoft’s Virtual Earth.

In July 2008, EEA/Microsoft launched Eye on Earth platform with Water Watch component combining scientific data and Web Mapping to present water quality in European countries:

Currently, it includes information on the water quality for more than 21.000 bathing sites throughout Europe
