International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre

The Global Groundwater Information System (GGIS) is an interactive, web-based portal to groundwater-related information and knowledge.

The GGIS consists of several modules structured around various themes. Each module has its own map-based viewer with underlying database to allow storing and visualizing geospatial data in a systematic way. Data sets include global data on transboundary aquifers, global groundwater data by aquifer, and country disaggregation, global groundwater stress (based on GRACE data), global groundwater quality data. There is also specific regional/national data focusing on the following aquifers: Dinaric Karst (Balkans), Ramotswa and Stampriet aquifers (Southern Africa), Esquipulas-Ocotepeque-Citala (Central Amerca), Pretashkent Aquifer (Central Asia). It also provides access to SADC Groundwater Information Portal, and groundwater on Small Island States
