Do you or a close personal friend enjoy the Everglades?
If so the KOE-a-tron is for you!
The KOE-a-tron is an interactive data portal intended to help Kissimmee-Okeechobee-Everglades (KOE) enthusiasts everywhere decipher what’s going on in the many and distant corners of the famed shallow flow system.
A colleague of mine once astutely pointed out how “data rich” we are in south Florida. With that in mind, the KOE-a-tron was constructed to (1) tap into a few of the most watched and longest running hydrologic data sets that we have available – courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey, South Florida Water Management District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service (and others) – and (2) then serve it up into a unified visual framework that bypasses all that messy number crunching that constantly keeps us stuck at square one.
You’ll also see a few “super charts” highlighted by yellow stars.
They synthesize multiple basin-wide parameters (rainfall, stage, depth, discharge, etc.) into a single hydrograph.
The KOE-a-tron is years in the making, and – as are so many things – always a step or two away from being fully done. But you’ve got to sip from the broth if you want to get it one hundred percent right, whether it’s hydrologic data or chicken noodle soup …
Or as the case is here,
A little bit of both.
It’s there for you if you need it, week after week,
