Service Description
Map shows monitoring water locations and quality of bathing water from 2005 till 2015. For the scale 1:5.000.001 and less detailed, data are aggregated by country. In such case, stacked bars show percentage of bathing water quality for coastal and inland waters together. Number of bathing waters within certain category is seen in pop up window which can be turned on with a click on one of the countries. For the scale range 1:5 000.000 to 1:700,001, individual bathing water sites (points) are visible instead of classified stacked charts and are coloured according to the classification of bathing water quality. Symbol size depends on the map scale (in more detailed map scales symbols are bigger). For the scales 1:700,000 and more detailed, symbol of bather in a square appears instead of points. All symbols (charts, circles and squares with bather) are colored according to achieved quality status. Pop-up windows can be opened with a click on individual bathing water monitoring site. Monitoring requirements such as the taking of a pre-season sample, a minimum of four samples per season and a minimum of one sample per month must be met for all bathing waters. If these rules are satisfied, the bathing water is categorised as 'sampling frequency satisfied'. If at least one monitoring requirement is not fulfilled the bathing water is categorized as 'sampling frequency not satisfied'. In such cases, bathing water can still be quality assessed if at least four samples per season (three samples if the season does not exceed eight weeks or the region is subject to special geographical constraints) are available and are more or less equally distributed throughout the season. Assessment of bathing water quality is possible when the bathing-water sample dataset is available for four consecutive seasons. For the 2015 bathing season, all reported bathing water data have been assessed under the provisions of the Directive 2006/7/EC for the first time. Bathing waters are accordingly

Service Description
For the scales 1:5.000.000 and less detailed, data are aggregated by country. In such case, a pie or bar charts show 1) the distribution of the different bathing water categories, 2) percentage of inland waters (lakes and rivers) and coastal waters, and 3) percentage of bathing water quality for coastal waters and inland waters. For the scale more detailed than 1:5.000.000, individual bathing water sites (points) are visible instead of classified cartogram and are coloured according the classification of bathing water quality. Symbol size depends on the map scale (more detailed map = bigger symbols). Symbol shape depends on bathing water type (sea, lake, and river) where the bathing place is placed. For bathing places that are insufficiently sampled under the strict frequency rules, orange outline of symbol showing status of bathing places by less strict rules is presented. For an explanation of less strict and strict rules see the chapter “Information about the data”.
