|Abstract:||The harmonization of environmental policies in the European Union regarding the protection of water supplies is, since 2002, focusing on the so-called Water Framework Directive (WFD). This directive states as one of its goals the ambition to enhance the exchange of geographic data describing the location of objects relevant for the monitoring of water quantity and quality. This chapter will focus on the creation of this common European Water Data Reference System in which geographic data ranging from fresh water bodies like small ponds to tidal areas along thecoast are to be shared between the member states committed to this directive.|
