Test the Waters’ Digital Solutions for Data Collected by Citizen Monitors/ Volunteer Monitors of Water Quality

This Webinar is going to introduce you to TestTheWater.org a digital data collection and data management web application. TestTheWater.org (TTW) allows Water Monitoring Groups to aggregate data from individual contributors via the TTW digital Mobile LabBook. Users can upload data to the TTW Data Center where the results are displayed to the assigned data owners. Data access and validation has been streamlined into an easy user interface. In addition, California users can mark their data for submission to the California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN) to maintain data compliance with the state. We also provide a report tool to assist with your water data analysis along with a forum to help you organize and connect with your community.

TestTheWater.org’s mission is to empower individuals to make their world a better place, because we believe that by working together we can change the world through action and active participation. TestTheWater.org allows people to make a direct impact on their local water quality, by helping them to connect and coordinate with other individuals and effectuate successful water monitoring programs.
