Transcript of Open Access to the Gold Standard: NWIS Web Services & Snapshot Tool for ArcGIS

National Water Information System :
The “gold standard” for water information
http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ August 2011 USGS Water Data for the Nation (NWISWeb) Database The Challenge: Retrieving and Preprocessing NWIS Water Quality Data How does a scientist retrieve, manage, and map information from NWIS? NWIS Web Services Snapshot 1. Retrieve sites in your study area. 2. Retrieve data to a relational geodatabase. 3. Use existing tools to query, analyze, plot, edit, expand, visualize, and export NWIS data. “A wonderfully useful USGS tool” “The Snapshot tool is one of the easiest to learn tools that I’ve seen…”

“In under ten minutes, I was able to create hydrographs of five stations that have collected flow data within the Ipswich River watershed.” 

“Personally, I think that’s pretty amazing.”
