Water Insight was founded in 2005 by Steef Peters and Marnix Laanen, to commercialise and operationalise water quality remote sensing products and services. To bridge the gap between satellite monitoring and in situ sampling, Water Insight has developed its own “close sensing” water quality spectrometers (the WISP-3 and the WISPstation). In order to innovate and cooperate we also participate in international research projects (e.g. H2020). Our products and services are sold worldwide.

Using Dutch optical measurement technology to help improve worldwide water quality At Water Insight, our mission is: To provide water quality information products and services based on our award-winning optical in-situ sensors and satellite data processing methods To participate in European research projects to constantly benchmark the quality or our instruments and information services to provide tailored and fit-for-purpose solutions for each customer To advocate the use of remote sensing techniques for water management (please contact us to let us convince you).
We combine our knowledge, years of experience, demands from the market and our IT skills to develop optical instruments that perform state-of-the-art spectral measurements either autonomously or with minimal operator requirements. We offer a full package including automated storage and processing of your measurements.
Water Insight can derive water quality products from a wide variety of satellite sensors, from CZCS to Sentinel 3 or even Very High Resolution data such as Worldview or airborne scanners. We use both standard corrections and algorithms and our own developed methods depending on requirements.
Water Insight firmly believes in innovation and cooperation and therefore we actively engage in (inter)national research projects. We have participated in and even coordinated numerous EU research projects. Currently we are leading H2020 projects EOMORES and COASTObs and are part of TAPAS and MONOCLE.
We sell and lease instruments such as the WISP-3. We also offer services such as the Harmful Algal Bulletin service which we have been running for years or our project based services such as duckweed monitoring or even single image processing and analysis.
