The objective of NUTPRINT is to visualize the human nutrient footprint of European citizens to the coastal waters within the EU to enable understanding of the loss of nutrients from land to sea, and it's routing. Basic functionality will be to show anthropogenic nutrient losses specified by source type (industrial, agriculture, waste water, etc.) and geographical area (at a reliable scale defined by the outcome of the E-HYPE model).
The project SWITCH-ON addresses water concerns to thoroughly explore and exploit the significant and currently untapped potential of open data. Water information is highly sought after by many kinds of end-users, both within government and business as well as within civil society. Water touches virtually all societal and environmental domains and the knowledge domain is largely multidisciplinary.
In the following list you will find some links that provide more background information about nutrients and water.
