Database for Hydrological Time Series of Inland Waters

The Database for Hydrological Time Series of Inland Waters (DAHITI) was developed by the Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Universität München (DGFI-TUM) in 2013 to provide water level time series of inland waters. Today, DAHITI provides a variety of hydrologial information such as water levels, surface areas and volume variations on lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and wetlands derived from satellite data, i.e. from multi-mission satellite altimetry and optical remote sensing imagery.
