Visualising Victoria’s Groundwater

  1. 1. Visualising Victoria’s Groundwater Peter Dahlhaus Andrew MacLeod Helen Thompson
  2. 2. About the projectAn interoperable web-GIS that federates groundwater data fromdisparate sources to assist water managers make the correct choicesfor the sustainable use of a precious resource• Use high-speed broadband to: – Distribute groundwater bore data – Visualise groundwater data – Model groundwater systems on-the-fly
  3. 3. Partners
  4. 4. About the project• Design Methodology – Data resides with the data managers – Intuitive to use (e.g. Google Earth) – Allow data downloads (subject to data manager’s consent) – Link spatial data to original documents and images – Link spatial data to real time data (data loggers, webcams) – Capable of generating models on the fly – Allow users to add, edit or update data (subject to QA/QC) – Spatial data and models should be credible to the user
