Water Insight was founded in 2005 to provide innovative high quality spatial information to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of water quality management. WI develops operational and commercially viable water remote sensing instruments, products and services using integrated satellite-born and close-range sensors, including their own hand-held water quality scanner, the WISP-3. WI is a spin-off of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) of the VU University in Amsterdam, thus basing their products and services on decades of research that has conclusively proven that concentrations of several water quality parameters, such as chlorophyll and total suspended matter, can be retrieved from remote sensing data. As an innovative company, Water Insight also participates in national and European research projects focused on water remote sensing. In TAPAS, WI is leading work package 7 "Monitoring and validation", which focusses on improving existing and developing new integrated operational tools for the timely and cost-efficient monitoring of aquaculture production. For several of the TAPAS case studies, novel systems will be implemented to continuously monitor key parameters for impact assessment and early warning.
