Collaborating with the Rock River Coalition, we held a 15-day public event using the water quality array to map water quality along most of the Rock River in Wisconsin. The project included a real-time map of the data as we paddled down the river along with public presentations in communities along the route.
Ever heard of an Arduino? It’s a small computer that allows you to make things…new things. We’ve combined an Arduino with water quality probes, a cell phone, and our GIS server to create a real-time water quality mapping system.
