INSIGHT Integrated Network of Scientific Information and GeoHydrologic Tools Western Governors Association – Western States Water Council, Water/Energy Workshop April 2, 2013 Nathan Morris Integrated Water Management Analyst Nebraska Department of Natural Resources
Overview Purpose of the INSIGHT initiative Types of data, information, and tools Ongoing and future efforts
What is INSIGHT? Interactive, web-based maps. Tell the basin story. Comprehensive source of quality-controlled water related data for analyses and models. Transparent data access and tools to help evaluate and support water management options; inform water policy, administration, and planning; and for educational purposes.
Why INSIGHT? Basin assessments Centralized comprehensive record keeping and streamlined source of scientific information to support management options (for Nebraska and for broader efforts) Public education
Who is developing INSIGHT and who will benefit? DNR with assistance from private contractors are currently developing INSIGHT Those that may benefit from INSIGHT include: –DNR –NRDs –UNL and other academia –Federal, state, regional, and local decision-makers and natural resource managers –Farmers/Ranchers –Media/Reporters –General Public
What types of information? Water Supplies –Basin water supplies –Groundwater depletions –Surface water depletions –Streamflow Water Uses/Demands –Meter data –Diversion records –Climate data –CROPSIM outputs –Water administration data –Land use data –And more…
How will information be integrated? Data Management Framework –Surface water consumption data –Streamflow data (DNR, BOR, and USGS) –Groundwater depletion data (groundwater model analysis) –CROPSIM - Integration of land use/water use –Other Web Mapping Framework Web Interface
Ongoing models and studies to be used in INSIGHT
