This webinar introduces SensorThings API, an open standard for data providers to publish interoperable data, and data users to build workflows and applications built on standard interfaces applicable across all implementing data providers. You will learn about how to use the API to get data, including from several example data providers. You will also learn how to set up your own.
Linking data to the wider hydrographic network is a key component of making water data more discoverable and more easily accessible. Dave Blodgett, a hydro informatics specialist at USGS, will describe how the Hydro Network-Linked Data Index (NLDI) connects data to the National Hydrography Dataset so that relationships between single monitoring locations and the broader water world can be revealed.
Sharing water data will enable us to more sustainably manage our most precious resource. Adel Abdallah and Ryan James of the Western States Water Council will present on the Water Data Exchange (WaDE) project, a framework and interactive dashboard for member states to share important water supply, water use, and water administration datasets.
As we learn more about the potential of wastewater surveillance for early warning of COVID, many states are grappling with how to transform their current water data infrastructure to ensure effective and efficient data management around wastewater surveillance.
