1.
Development of a dedicated sub-system based on remote sensing and a common used GIS platform that will allow the storage, management and exchange of graphic Information and of related attribute data for the flood monitoring activities. This system will improve the floods management and mitigate theirs effects in the Romanian - Hungarian transboundary test-area.
