Data producers willing to share their data are the foundation of the Internet of Water, but first and foremost, that data must serve the needs of the data producer.
Open hardware for water monitoring, combined with a national network of technical support for community science enabled by powerful web-based data sharing and management tools, is leading a revolution in solving water pollution problems.
A statistical comparison of temperature, depth, conductivity, and turbidity collected by EnviroDIY and USGS equipment shows comparable measurements and helps identifies what parameters require different levels of quality control.
Users will notice increased responsiveness, speed, and reliability, along with a new and improved Time Series Visualization.
DIY is in many cases a misnomer; in reality, we Do-It-Together: bringing people together to develop and share environmental monitoring and measurement systems.
Travel distance is critical for studying many aspects of river ecosystems, and sometimes it’s more accurate to measure, not just predict, how far river water travels over time.
