Data base for contaiminated sites in Latvia
Guidance material for efficient handling of data
Databases are used in all participating countries to handle and register
contaminated sites. To improve the work it is essential to have an efficient
system that is developed and regularly updated. During the project guidelines
there was developed how to, in a better and more efficient way, make reviews,
assessments and registration of contaminated and potentially contaminated

GIS is a visual tool that is valuable for receiving an overview of
contaminated areas. There is although a need to develop better tools regarding
investigated and remediated areas. During the project GIS- tools has been
created where remediated and investigated areas are presented and
visualized. GIS have been used in the pilot areas for describing chemical,
physical and technical data. The result will be valuable in decision making
regarding polluted site management.

Mobile applications for contaminated sites
Information about contaminated sites can
today be fund at websites of environmental authorities taking part in the
project. Habits of the general public have changed and today people are
expecting to be able to use smart phones to find information. A part of the
project was to create mobile applications presenting information about
contaminated sites including GIS-maps in a more user-friendly way.

GIS simulation in 3-dimentional maps
CAB has made a 3D simulation of an investigates area contaminated with dioxins in Östergötland.
Models could be a valuable tool for evaluation of risk and calculate dispersion
of polluting substances from contaminated sites to ground and surface water.
During the project existing models have been used and developed for calculating
transport of pollutions to water bodies. Data from pilot areas have been used in the activity and focus has been on relevant substances addressed in
the Water Framework Directive.
