Evaluating the Use of Data Platforms for Water Management Decisions

There has been increasing recognition that the fragmentation of water and ecological data across California hinders effective and timely water management decisions. To help remedy this issue, developers are building water data platforms to pull together the data relevant to the decision-making process. Researchers at Water in the West analyzed development and implementation of 12 existing water data platforms to determine factors contributing to their success, and make a series of recommendations to help future development of water data platforms.
