These kinds of complex analysis tasks are currently carried out by highly qualified experts, such as analytical chemists, geodesists, or ecologists. In many cases, the personnel and equipment available for this kind of work is nowhere near sufficient to process the ever-increasing volume of data. Modem information technology can make major contributions to making this task faster, safer, and more cost-effective. However, questions regarding the privacy and security of this process need to be taken into account early in the planning stage.

The network allows the government to monitor the groundwater at a large number of different locations, covering a broad spectrum of land use and sources of toxic substances. The network also provides a convenient testbed for evaluating the efficiency of legal and other administrational actions. ZEUS makes available a large number of classification tools and (geo )statistical methods. Examples include algorithms to compute the hydraulics around any particular probing point or to estimate the protective function of the groundwater coverage.
