Dealing with Data

Volume 5 Number 3 May/June 2006

“We need more data.” Water professionals seemingly always wish for more data, which may ultimately lead to better-informed decisions. But simply improving access to and management of existing data can make a difference. In this issue, we consider large-scale hydrologic data collection programs, the importance of having sufficient data to ably manage our water resources, and the importance of providing context to data. We also look into the financial struggles of federal long-term hydrologic data collection programs. Finally, we include examples of data management schemes from national to local levels, and tips to improve data management.
