Water Watch

Wondering where it’s safe to swim in Europe? An initiative called Eye on Earth – Water Watch created by Microsoft and the European Environment Agency and built on Windows Azure will help you find out what water you can swim in without wondering if you’re going to go home with more than just memories.

Microsoft’s Rob Bernard states: “By combining environmental data with mapping technologies, it is possible for people to see where changes are happening. Eye on Earth provides people with information which has historically been difficult to find. With this new application, people will be more informed and be able to take appropriate actions to help ensure a cleaner environment.”
