GEO AquaWatch and UW-Madison SSE Dept Awarded Water Quality Portal Grant!

We are thrilled to announce that GEO AquaWatch, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Department, has been awarded a one year $86,000(USD) grant from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to initiate development of a water quality information system. The project titled “Development of a Global Water Quality Portal Using the SSEC RealEarth™ Framework” uses visualization technology to create an open, web-accessible visualization tool with capabilities including map displays of satellite-derived water quality information, in situ data sources, providing live graphs, and charts with daily updates and trends that draw attention to water quality issues. The website will also take advantage of RealEarth™ mobile device alert capabilities and social media sharing.
