WORKSHOP GOALS

To focus on the status of water use data science, state agency strategies for getting to high-quality water use information, including online reporting, automated data checking, and remote-sensing tools. The WIMS and USGS Water Use Data Collaboration will serve as a forum for states and other attendees to exchange information on this highly specialized and important category of water data.

MEET YOUR PEERS

Visit with other state agency water data program staff members and water use specialists to hear their experience and strategies for water use data. Lots of time set aside for sharing ideas, follow-up questions, and discussion.

DISCOVER GREAT TOOLS

We’ll be assembling the latest and greatest research and tool developers at this meeting, from both eastern and western states, and federal agency partners. We’ll also explore how the Water Use Data & Research (WUDR) grants have helped states to improve their water use data processes and outcomes.

COLLABORATE

Across the states, every agency and every data program manager feels the weight of responsibility for putting out great water data that can be used by others. Explore synergies and opportunities to work with other data program professionals – folks who are in the same boat and understand the challenges of funding, gathering, maintaining, and publishing great water data.
