The Southern California Stormwater Monitoring Coalition (SMC) has begun developing a comprehensive data management system intended to streamline data submission, quality-control checks and data analysis.
Built on the Esri ArcGIS Open Data platform, the open-data portal will aggregate all SMC program data, as well as integrate with other databases, including those maintained by the state’s Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program (SWAMP) and the California Rapid Assessment Method (CRAM).
SMC members will be able to directly access their own data, as well as use data query and visualization tools to analyze these data sets, including calculating California St
ream Condition Index scores.
SCCWRP, which is building the portal, is scheduled to present a conceptual prototype to the SMC this spring. Feedback from SMC members will inform development of the full prototype over the next year.
