HYDROSCOPE is a Greek nation-wide research programme with 14 participating organisations aiming at the development of a national distributed data-base system for meteorological, hydrological and hydrogeological information. Available modern computer technologies such as powerful workstations, high speed wide-area networks, relational distributed database management systems, client-server architecture, graphical user interfaces and fourth generation programming languages have been used throughout the project. In parallel, a human network consisting of scientists and engineers from all participating organisations, universities, ministries, research centres and public agencies, has been set up. In this paper we present the two-year experience from the project, both at technical and human level, the achievements made and the problems encountered, as well as the perspectives up to the year 2000.
