The record keeping of hydrometeorological measurements is particularly important infrastructure for research and technology, but it is also extremely useful for the industry and administration. In Greece, efforts for bringing together the data belonging to various institutions and their organization into a common base started in the 1990s with the Hydroscope project. Today this database is available on the Internet (www.hydroscope.gr) within a larger system that includes geographical information, software applications for data processing and a digital library of documents related to water resources. Ensuring updating the database with new measurements is particularly useful as the country's infrastructure and as a means for implementation in the country of the EU Directives related to water.
