With WaterDrop, you can explore water inputs, like rain and snowfall; you can study the condition of the water supply, like groundwater level and reserves; and, with some organization and thinking, you can begin to understand gradients and flow – where the water goes.
You’ll see trends over time. You’ll spot patterns that deserve local attention. You can start to quantify risk and opportunity.
Areas where available data are insufficient will become clear, and with that confirmed data sparsity, you, your clients and constituents can decide to invest to know more. You can decide to contribute your own data, enlist citizen scientists to participate in collection, or justify new investment in remote monitoring to support sustainable water management.
Visitors are welcome. The “Basic” version of WaterDrop is free and requires no login and assembles data from three public sources: the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) NCDC Weather Stations and USGS (United States Geological Survey) NWIS network sensors and Wellntel Shared Sensors. With a monthly “Explorer” or “Scientist” subscription, you can add your own data sources – like history and readings from existing fleets of environmental sensors- alongside the public sources (your information is private and not available to others, unless you choose to make share it.)
Of course, Wellntel Analytics Dashboard (AD) Subscribers can load these trusted public data sources alongside their own networks (or anywhere else) on maps, charts and reports to share with colleagues and stakeholders. Subscribers are urged to learn more about how WaterDrop will improve their AD experience.
