INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR WATER MANAGEMENT (REGISPRO)
1. Purpose and Objectives
The last ten years have seen a growing awareness that water, soil and the subsurface space cannot be managed in a sustainable manner unless all
interests have been carefully considered and the strategic planning and
operational management have been attuned to the various environmental
The REGISPRO system consists of a Data Storage Kernel (DSK) and an
Application Environment (AE). REGISPRO*DSK comprises functionality for general data management (acquisition,maintenance, selection, output), whereas REGISPRO*AE comprises a set of generic tools for processing spatial
The REGISPRO datamodel is adapted to national and international standards and in principle can therefore handle all standardized spatial
and non-spatial data sets. Data capture: a large set of interactive forms
applications have been developed for manual entry of the data. These
applications provide all the integrity checks and consistency controls
which are necessary to guarantee the integrity of the database contents.
For bulk data loading, the generic REGISPRO*Loader can be used. This tool
A selection of data, or the result of an analysis, can be presented in
the form of reports, maps or graphs. Using the generic REGISPRO*Exporter
they can be exported directly in ASCII files or transformed into other
formats for exchange with other information systems. All manner of
annotations, legends, etc. can be added to maps, graphs or drawings before
these are plotted. The database can be used to prepare data that can then
be used directly in external applications.
5. Operational Requirements and Restrictions
REGISPRO can be installed on a PC (Minimal requirement an 80586 processor), with at least 32 MB internal memory or on a UNIX workstation. REGISPRO runs under WINDOWS NT and various UNIX versions.
6. Forms of Presentation
A comprehensive REGISPRO user's guide is available. REGISPRO is
subject to ongoing development. This means that the generic and specific
functionality is extended and improved continuously. Users with a
maintenance contract are entitled to new versions.
7. Operational Experience
TNO Institute of Applied Geoscience - the central groundwater research
institute in the Netherlands has been administering the national databank
on groundwater and the subsurface for over 40 years. Since 1990 the On-Line
Groundwater Archive (OLGA) databank has been extended to include
