The eighth Dutch water board in the Netherlands decides to use GEONIS Blaeu.

Waterschap Friesland or Wetterskip Fryslân in Frisian, is the eighth Dutch water board in the Netherlands to use GEONIS Blaeu.

Wetterskip Fryslân is situated in the north of the Netherlands and is the biggest water board with 355'000 ha. In the north, the water board is limited at the Wadden Sea and in the west at the IJsselmeer (also Lake IJssel). The Wadden Sea islands Vlieland, Ameland, Terschelling and Schiermonikoog also belong to the same water board. Wetterskip Fryslân manages more than 190 km of primary protective water buildings such as dams and dikes along the Wadden Sea and IJsselmeer. Furthermore, about 3,600 km of secondary dams.

According to their website, for more than 750 years, the Wetterskip water board is always looking after the best and sustainable solutions. This can be confirmed with their decision for GEONIS Blaeu!

GEONIS Blaeu has been developed by Esri Netherlands in collaboration with Royal HaskoningDHV and the engineering company MUG. It has specifically designed for water boards and offers applications for all processes needed for water boards.
