Bringing Water Data to the Forefront in Oregon: The Oregon Water Data Portal Project

Alexander Merino, Oregon State University Center for Applied Systems & Software
We envision the Oregon Water Data Portal (OWDP) as a single point of access on the Internet, where people can find data about Oregon’s water – from how much of it there is in certain regions, to how clean it is, how it is transported to communities, to how much is needed to support fish, wildlife, and habitat. It will have the types of data and information about water and infrastructure that can inform water resource decision-making in Oregon and will make it easier for the public and Oregon state agencies to find, integrate, and analyze data.
