Water Rights Data Management Tools
We developed a series of data dashboards to assist water managers and water conservation groups in ranking the relative value of water rights for flow restoration project potential. Salmon, trout and other riparian dependent species around the Puget Sound will breathe a sigh of relief as that cold water keeps flowing through the late summer. This was a perfect example of how we can take massive amounts of highly complex data and distill it into a powerful decision making tool so managers can help restore ecosystems.
“Bluewater GIS is like magic, friendly magic! They worked with me to develop a beautiful tool that pushed GIS programming capabilities to its seams. At the end we had an intuitive product that allowed me to more efficiently and clearly prioritize my work. Their ability to manipulate that same data into different visual displays that would be approachable and relevant to our partners was hugely effective.”
