Glades made easy like never before

Tired of muddling through the data?

Here’s a new data portal for tracking water depths and gate flows in the Glades.

No, not this.  Scroll down to see the data portal.

All your favorite individual stations (i.e., Site 65, P33, S-11s) are colored in blue.

Click on the alphanumeric labels to view the 3-year hydrographs. Stations were carefully selected to include only those that go back to at least 1993. That’s the cutoff point (i.e., 1993-2010) I used to construct the historical statistics shown on each hydrograph – thus making them comparable to each other one to the next.

Each hydrograph is plotted relative to “water depth” as measured from the slough – or as is the case in the Big Cypress, pond apple – floor.

If you’re too tired to click through all the stations:

Regulatory stage readings are colored in red. They provide the guidance for how the gates are operated.

The yellow-colored Big Cypress Swamp, Everglades and Lake give you easy to read multi-parameter charts instead, although these may take a few moments to fully digest.

Or if you really want to dive in deep:

Click on the circles below each station label to see a display of the full period of record, plotted up in easy to read calendar style. Color coding of these “calendar” charts matches up with the major vegetation types for the Glades, and in the in case of the Big Cypress stations on the left-hand side of the map, the swamp.

This data portal is updated weekly and there for you whenever you need it:

Just click on the Glades Tab at the top of the journal to view.

How could it possibly get any better?
