In the research project MapField, scientists, companies, authorities and the agriculture sector will collaborate to develop innovative environmental technologies that will help protect Danish groundwater, streams and fjords against nitrogen pollution while at the same time creating better production conditions for agriculture.

MapField will create knowledge about the nature of the subsurface with a few metres accuracy, which is crucial for precise predictions of the water and nitrogen pathways and turnover from the individual field to groundwater and streams in specific hydrological catchments.

GEUS is the leading part of the project and the Innovation Fund Denmark supports the project with 18,9 millions.
