The documentation collected from the case studies developed by each partner formed the basis for the organisation of the database. The multidisciplinary character of the project allowed for the creation of a "data entry form” which although complex, it is easy to build upon and extremely versatile, for the user, in case of future developments of the project.

The project’s initial scope to create a simple digital archive was surpassed by the groups’ desire to open the thematic reasoning, on which their case studies were based, to an encyclopaedic approach, thus introducing instead a "waterwikipedia" (www.waterwikipedia.org), based on "wiki" technology, whose contents will belong to accredited experts and whose aim will be to collect and distribute, worldwide, research focused on water cultural heritage assets.
