Webinar: Water Quality Portal Data Discovery Tool

The Data Discovery Tool is a free open-source, downloadable tool that can interact with the Water Quality Portal to retrieve and explore water quality monitoring data. The tool automatically downloads data from the Portal, does some preliminary QA/QC, generates summary information, and allows a user to explore and export data. This tool is your best window into the Water Quality Portal and a great way to build scientific evidence to support or prioritize your projects.

During this presentation, EPA demonstrates how the tool works and discuss the value of having open source tools and water quality monitoring data.  The Data Discovery Tool is available for download on the EPA’s website and on github.
