USGS National Water Dashboard: Modern Water Data Delivery for the Next Decade 

USGS Oklahoma-Texas Water Science Center Webinar Series - Friday July 16, 11 am Central

The USGS National Water Dashboard (NWD) is a new mobile-friendly tool that provides real-time information on water levels, and weather and flood forecasts all in one interactive mapping application. Building on innovative work by the Oklahoma-Texas Water Science Center with the USGS Texas Water Dashboard that was launched in early 2016, the NWD represents the next step in the evolution of USGS water data delivery as part of the USGS Network Operations Management System (NOMS) project. As a national-scale web mapping application, the NWD serves decision makers, emergency managers, and the public with data and information for real-time stream, lake and reservoir, precipitation, and groundwater data from more than 13,500 USGS observation sites across the country. This information is shown along with NOAA weather data such as radar, watches and warnings, past precipitation totals, precipitation forecasts, and drought conditions from open water data sources.
