New technologies offer new possibilities for the collection and use of objective information in water management. The last 5 years, several technologies have been developed and applied to support decision-making in water management at different levels: the touchtable is used at national and regional planning workshops for the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100, mobile apps are developed for collecting monitoring information, as well as operational (e.g. regulators) and strategic (e.g. polder planning, infrastructure design) planning support.  In this session the use of technical innovations (Touchtable, Mobile apps and Mapathons, etc. ) in the field of water management will be demonstrated and discussed.
