An initiative put together by Microsoft and the European Environment Agency (EEA) designed to monitor the water quality at bathing spots across Europe and share the information with users has evolved. Microsoft promised that the latest data introduced to Eye on Earth - Watter Watch was capable of reflecting water quality for the current bathing season. In this regard, the software giant indicated that some samples could have been taken and analyzed just days before the update was introduced to the service. Tourists planning their summer vacation will be able to easily access information on the water quality in no less than 21,000 monitoring locations across Europe. The service was initially launched in 2008 and was accessing mapping content from Virtual Earth. As Bing replaced Live Search, Eye on Earth was transitioned to Bing Maps.
