Database database contains information about all lakes in Latvia. Our data is used on a daily basis by state agencies and private organizations, as well hundreds of lake owners, fishermen and other friends of nature.

Database like no others

The database contains aggregated information from books, research papers, and other sources. The developement of the database was started in 1999, and we're now the leading information source about lakes in Latvia. We have recently added geo-location information to our database, and we're proud to be one of the first websites in Latvia which use Google Maps to display location of it's objects.
