The environmental information system (EIS Pesticide) for pesticide issues was created using spatial data warehouse technology. This system allowed qualifying agricultural activities along with river basin characteristics. Specific spatial objects were designed to characterise practices at the relevant scales. The axes of analysis allowed providing results at different levels of integration, for different dimensions e. g. time, sprayed surface area, or pesticide type. The system was tested using datasets collected in the Charente watershed and its sub-basins and calculated pesticide pressure indicators on demand for each aggregation level defined (Vernier et al., 2013).
