Satnav guide to European waterways
This guide will revolutionise continental waterway cruising! The concept was developed by the UK company EurEauWeb, which approached Euromapping for GIS mapping and plotting of waterway information for Europe. After nine years of R&D, Water-Way (France) is now available. It gives full information on services and attractions along the French waterways (9500 km), as well as detailed mapping of West European waterway network for route planning (26400 km). For the wealth of information contained and the quality and frequency of updating, and its numerous functions - including basic route planning - this electronic guide will become the indispensable 'all-in-one' companion for long-distance boaters or towpath hikers and cyclists.
Study tour Bohemia/Saxony
Euromapping recently organised a unique tour to key waterway projects in Bohemia, Czech Republic, and Saxony, Germany. The study tour, on April 3-8, was directly related to the work of the EU Waterways Forward partnership project (2010-2012).
The Czech Waterways Directorate prepared this digital rendering of the projected transverse inclined plane downstream of Slapy dam (height 53m).

Inland Waterways of France
Euromapping participated in production of the 8th edition of David Edwards-May’s guide Inland Waterways of France. In his Introduction, the author discusses the questions of ownership and governance of the waterways that are causing much concern for user groups. This new edition has 320 pages in full colour, with detailed maps of more than 130 key sites on the network, and new versions of the useful overview maps for each waterway. The maps locating fuel points and waste-water pump-out facilities will also be valuable for route planning. Evocative colour photographs make the book attractive to browse through.

Roubaix Canal Blue Days
Blue Links was a leading EU-funded programmes for canal restoration. Euromapping played a key role in this project by coordinating communication and events leading up to reopening of the Roubaix-Espierres Canal to through navigation in June 2011. A major event and boat rally, Blue Days, took place on 18-20 September 2009, and the canal was opened for about 2 weeks to allow boats to assemble on the canal's summit level.
In partnership with the Lille communication agency Cargo Plume, Euromapping was responsible for communication, events and coordination of a group of experts to ensure transnational (and international) collaboration and transferable project outputs.
