WaterSMART Data Visualization

Project ID: 97
Principal Investigator: Adam Ricks
Research Topic: Water Resource Data Analysis
Funded Fiscal Years: 2016, 2017 and 2018
Keywords: None

Research Question

How can data generation support development of a web-based mapping application with enhanced capability to control GIS layer visibility, information popups, search, query and filter per layer attributes?

Need and Benefit

This project evaluated data needs associated with the development of the WaterSMART Progress Report, due in August, 2016. Project involved compiling data on program accomplishments and developing interactive maps and GIS layers to communicate data and information in an electronic format. This project identified a comprehensive approach to sharing data regarding ongoing and completed projects funded under WaterSMART and accessible by Reclamation's Federal and non-Federal partners. WaterSMART Data Visualization Tool creates a more transparent, complete, and user friendly presentation of WaterSMART program data.
