Integrated Hydrology + Data Science

Texas Coastal Science

The Challenge

The Oklahoma-Texas Water Science Center Gulf Coast and South Texas Branches cooperate with multiple stakeholders on data monitoring projects along the Texas coast. Stakeholders found it difficult to access the data for the project sites they were funding, and the Gulf Coast Branch found it difficult to easily and quickly communicate the scope and interrelated nature of their cooperative networks and projects with potential new stakeholders. Stakeholders and project staff needed a way to quickly find coastal projects and data.

Our Solution

IHDS developers designed an interactive, map-based website including

  • Displaying project sites by cooperator, data monitoring project, or data collection type
  • Linking directly to the public data download options
  • Providing a quick and easy way to see the scope and interrelatedness of the coastal monitoring networks
  • Building a quick overview of the Coastal Texas data monitoring network and links to more detailed information on current projects
