Water Quality Database
Access the Water Quality Database, interactive map and data entry tools through the IDAH2O Master Water Stewards web application.
About the Web Application
This web application is connected to the University of Idaho's Northwest Knowledge Network (NKN), in partnership with IDAH2O.
NKN is a secure central data storage system for access and processing of data from anywhere.
This database is a part of CUASI. CUASI is a larger Hydrologic Information System (HIS) for sharing water data.
The HIS works in a way similar to websites.
- A server hosts data.
- A central catalog mines data and enables discovery (like a search engine such as Google).
- A client allows you to browse data (like a web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome).
Data Collection and Availability
All IDAH2O Master Water Stewards data is submitted through online forms. This data is available to the public quickly.
Volunteers or distant users can create graphs and charts, and view data collected at any IDAH2O registered site for which data exists. The IDAH2O web application can generate reports for specific sites or water quality parameters.
Each volunteer has a unique password to upload data. Please contact us if you have questions about data, data entry, changing passwords or the larger Hydrologic Information System.
