Datashed 3.0 Workshop
Join us Friday, October 29th for a workshop on how to use the latest and greatest tools in Datashed.
Stream Restoration Incorporated created Datashed (www.datashed.org), a free, open-source, web-based, GIS-enabled database that functions as a maintenance and data management tool. The website can store a variety of information related to both individual projects and overall watershed restoration efforts including water quality data, documents, maps, engineering design drawings, treatment technologies, photographs, etc. Datashed provides an open centralized repository to preserve this important information so that anyone with internet access can view, print, or download. User accounts are only needed for approved users who will be adding or editing the stored information. The website provides students, researchers, citizen scientists, and engineers with real data from existing treatment systems to conduct research and improve designs. Datashed can also be utilized for education/outreach efforts of watershed groups to highlight their projects and provides a certain level of transparency as funding agencies are able to observe the effectiveness of the projects.
