River Rally is a national conference for river and water champions, bringing together individuals and organizations that are invested in rivers and addressing water issues. The Water Data Collaborative presented on “Community Water Science Powered by Open Data and Technology – What’s Happening, What Do You Need, And How Do We Motivate Participation”. The presentation offered a framework for how citizen scientists can move from data collection to storing data on services to visualizing data to impacting decision-makers. The presentation also described how the Water Data Collaborative efforts fit within, and support, the concept of an Internet of Water (presented by Lauren Patterson).
