My Mission

Our mission is to spread open source software values which are applied to engineering and water cycle management. Develop, promote and universalize the Giswater use. Contribute to knowledge research and development related to the integral water cycle management area, hydraulic networks, urban and fluvial hydrology or flood risks management. Become an international reference in those fields on the basis of its projects and initiatives.


GISWATER is an open-source tool for the integral water cycle management (water supply, sewerage or flood risks). It was especially developed and designed for city councils, supramunicipal administrations, water and sewerage services concessionary companies and hydraulic professionals. GISWATER was initialy developed by the Sediment Transport Investigation Group of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (GITS-UPC) and the consulting firm BGEO. Both entities founded at the beginning of 2014 the Giswater Association, the association that since then releases the program versions and dynamize the users and developers community.
