Data Graphing and Export System

The DGES was developed to provide the majority of users with quick and easy access to SWMP data. The DGES utilizes an intuitive map-based interface and offers single station exports, yearly authenticated file downloads (these may include non-standard nutrient parameters), charting, and a current conditions display for real-time stations. A quick start tutorial is also available here .

Advanced Query System

The AQS was developed to specifically address the data delivery needs of those end-users looking for large amounts of data exported in a format that can be easily imported and manipulated for data analysis. The AQS offers three different query options allowing for mass downloads of annual files, customized queries for specific parameters and multiple stations in the same file, and an option to merge water quality, meteorological and nutrient datasets.

Real Time Data Application

The Real Time Application allows users to view near real time data, real time gauges, and 24 hour graphs with multiple parameters. You may use a bookmarked link to directly access the station of interest, or browse and select your station. The display will update automatically with the latest information as it comes in.

GIS Application

The GIS Application gives users access to Reserve boundary, watershed boundary, and high resolution reserve habitat maps. In addition, Google Earth KML files are available for the Reserve boundaries, watershed boundaries, and monitoring station locations.

Vegetation Monitoring Application

The Vegetation Monitoring Application delivers submerged aquatic vegetation (such as eelgrass and algae) and emergent vegetation (such as salt marshes and mangroves) monitoring data for participating Reserves. Parameters monitored include percent cover of all plant species, as well as stem density and canopy height of the common species.
