Blog Entry On World Water Day - Open Data for Water Resources
by Sumandro Chattapadhyay published Mar 22, 2018 last modified Jan 28, 2019 02:41 PM — filed under: , , , , , , ,
Lack of open data for researchers and activists is a key barrier against ensuring access to water and planning for sustainable management of water resources. In a collaboration between DataMeet and CIS, supported by Arghyam, we are exploring the early steps for making open data and tools to plan for water resources accessible to all. To celebrate the World Water Day 2018, we are sharing what we have been working on in the past few months - a paper on open data for water studies in India, and a web app to make open water data easily explorable and usable. Craig Dsouza led this collaboration, and authored this post.
