Data Clearinghouse Committee
This committee has provided input and feedback on the Indiana Water Monitoring Inventory (https://engineering.purdue.edu/~inwater/), and more recently the Catalog of Monitoring Protocols (http://monitoringprotocols.pbworks.com/). These tools provide information on who, where, what, when, and how monitoring is taking place in Indiana. These tools are already providing information used by a variety of stakeholders, but continued efforts by the committee are needed to expand the information included and ensure that the tools meet the needs of the broader Indiana water resources community. Specifically, the committee will:
1) plan additional tools or enhancements;
2) review updates to the tools;
3) publicize and inform other groups, using the presentation and fact sheet that are available, and;
4) solicit additional dataset information.
