The Assessment Dashboard – An Interactive Exploration of Water Quality Data

Jason D Jones
States struggle to complete Clean Water Act Assessments due to the complexity of gathering and analyzing massive datasets. Arizona used free open-source software to reduce the time it takes to generate an assessment from 9 months to 15 minutes. In these webinar slides, Jason Jones, Senior Scientist at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, demonstrates how Arizona's publicly accessible interactive Water Quality Assessment Dashboard provides full transparency behind each decision and informs users of what additional data is needed to fill data gaps.
