Join Sitka for the 2021 CA Water Data Science Symposium

This month, the best minds in water data science are coming together for two days of informative panels, accessible to all for free online. California Water Boards is presenting the 6th annual California Water Data Science Symposium on June 29th and 30th. This year’s theme is Beyond Open Data: Radical Inclusivity for Water Data Equity, which couldn’t be more important or relevant as it relates to the water management challenges the world currently faces.

Two of our engagement managers are co-presenting panels, bringing light to new applications of data management, visualization, and exploration.

On June 29th at 10:25 am PDT, Laura Nickelhoff is presenting with Environmental Science Associate’s Mike Leech on the cloud-based data management and visualization system called DELVE that facilitates centralized storage of environmental data collected by the California Department of Water Resources’ Operations and Maintenance group, increases data standardization, and promotes data re-use. DELVE guides users through an accessible and streamlined data collection process that supports more consistent and accurate data entry increasing collaboration between stakeholders.

John Henry Burns will join Environmental Defense Fund’s Christina Babbitt to discuss the Water Accounting & Trading Platform later that morning at 11:15. Attendees will hear about our efforts with the Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District to create the first open-source water accounting and trading platform in California.

Head over to the Water Accounting & Trading Platform service page to get more information about how this project came to fruition.

The platforms we build are always growing and being improved upon, events like these give us the opportunity to share our results and learn about what others are doing.

We hope you join us for our panels and check out the others, too. While this is a free event, registration is required, so don’t forget to save your seat!
