WISE - Spatial Data (WISE-5) WISE

This data flow includes the EIONET spatial reference datasets relevant for the Water Information System for Europe.

It follows the same data models used in the Water Framework Directive - River Basin Management Plans - 2016 Spatial data reporting.

Data Providers not reporting under WFD (e.g. non-EU Member States) are expected to report under WISE-5.

Data Providers reporting under WFD may also use WISE-5 to provide information on EIONET spatial objects not covered by the WFD reporting, although it is expected that this will be an exceptional situation. Please note that:

Starting with the 2016 Data Call, reporting permissions are managed by the National Focal Points.

Please contact your National Focal Point if you require reporting permissions over CDR.
