About the Data
The colored, clickable, symbols on this map depict stream flow conditions as a percentile, which is computed from the period of record for the current day of the year. Only sites with at least 30 years of record are displayed. The gray colored sites indicate sites that were not ranked by percentiles either because they have fewer than 30 years of record or because they report parameters other than stream flow. Some sites, for example, measure stream stage only.
The clickable sites, Water Resources Conditions List, and Data Table at the bottom of the map are all connected. Interacting with any of them will activate pop-ups and display the site in both the Map, List and Table.
To see more about the data from a single site, click on the green "See More Data" button in the fly-out box.
The Water Data Dashboard is designed to work on mobile devices. All mobile gestures work with the map.
Pinch to zone gestures will zoom the map in and out. A double tap will also zoom into the tapped area of the map.
Each site shape is clickable and will open a pop-up box. The arrow in the site pop-up is clickable and will open a view of that sites data in NWIS or Groundwater Watch.
