The Vechtstromen Water Authority is responsible for their region’s water, everything from providing fresh water, treatment of waste water and managing almost 5000 km of rivers and waterways. Quite a task when you consider most of Holland is below sea level!
To manage their photography they selected MediaFiler, which is used by a number of different departments within the water authority. MediaFiler holds a large amount of operational photography – waterways, river banks, bridges and plant machinery. The marketing department also uses the library for their Press, PR and promotional material along with photographs covering company events.
An important extra feature is MediaFiler provides the connection to the IRIS geographic information system (GIS), integrating environmental information to images held in MediaFiler – read more about this feature.
