SWIMS is an application designed to store and manage data for the five principal types of water sources in Somalia: boreholes, dams, berkads, dugwells and springs.

It has three core modules:

  • Source Location module holds the primary table to which all other data are linked. Each source location is uniquely identified by name, source type and GPS coordinates.
  • Source Records module provides a record that can be used to build a comprehensive history of the source. To use this feature, the user is required to collect data regularly on the source.
  • Source Interventions module provides project managers and planners with information on the past, on-going and planned activities on a source.
