Annual Florida Water Atlas Advisory Meeting - 2008
Wateratlas.org is the gateway to a group of websites developed by the Florida Center for Community Design and Research at the University of South Florida in partnership with local, state and federal government agencies. Their goal is to design a comprehensive data resource, eventually covering the state of Florida that helps citizens and scientists alike make informed decisions concerning our vital water resources.
This three-part meeting illustrates the work that goes into the OneAtlas cause, and provides a forum where members and those interested may ask questions or provide suggestions that help to make the water atlas better for everyone. Those who are interested in a DVD version of these events may contact the people at wateratlas.org to acquire a copy.
