Hydrogeology, Yemen

The Republic of Yemen is located on the Arabian Peninsula, bordered by Saudi Arabia and Oman. The scarce availability of water resources and the increasing demand for water are two of the main problems facing the 20 million population.

Several international economic, financial and administrative reform programs have been initiated with the World Bank, IMF and international donors where water management implementation has been made a priority.

The German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) has provided advisory services to the National Water Resources Authority (NWRA) and the Geological Survey and Mineral Resources Board (GSMRB) with regard to national water quality control, the collection, processing and evaluation of relevant data as well as in counterpart training.

As one of the main project outputs environmental geological information is provided in support of the sustainable and integrated management of available water resources. GeODin Professional is used by the GSMRB as a environemental and hydrogeological database integrated within their project structure with tools for complex data structure analysis, list comparison and report preparation, special graphics etc. An additional software program, the GeODin ArcGIS Extension for the Geographic Information ¬System ArcGIS from ESRI, combines the functions of GeODin (data management, presentation etc.) with geographic data and other GIS functions.

Fugro consult GmbH has created the GeODin® data management software which is used worldwide by governments, research institutions, universities and multi-national companies. GeODin programs can be combined to create customized and integrated water services solutions.

The software used for this ongoing project, can be extended in other contexts with the decentralized data collection capabilities of GeODin Shuttle (free program for data collection) as well as web based data monitoring packages, such as the GeODin Image- & Portal-Server Editions.
