  Name: Global Rapid Indicator Mapping System for the Water Cycle and Water Resources Assessment
  Abbreviation: Global Rapid Indicator Mapping System (Global-RIMS)
  Description: Global-RIMS is a tool for display of water data sets and accompanying ancillary data. The development of the Global Rapid Integrated Monitoring System (Global-RIMS) has been funded in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Global-RIMS is an operational, digital information system for water resource assessment cast within a geographic information system framework accessible via the World Wide Web. The system includes a broad suite of spatial and statistical data encompassing point scale and gridded socioeconomic and biogeophysical products for data exploration and download. This data are organized according to water indicator themes and is presented in the spatial context of the river basin to analyze the changing nature of water in relation to human needs and activities at the global, regional and case study scales.
