Abstract
    Rijkswaterstaat is the Dutch government agency, which is responsible for the maintenance of the water infrastructure, the protection against floods and the quality of the main water systems. To perform these tasks a lot of information is needed and therefore many measurements are performed in the fields of physics, hydrography and ecology. Of all data types the hydrographic data represent the largest volume. To manage this huge amount of data Rijkswaterstaat has developed the WADI (WAter Data Infrastructure) database.
