Mapping, Data, and Analysis tools to help you visualize, find, acquire, analyze, display and understand water resource data.

Use this tool to find any water resource on any Water Atlas by its name (or alias), or to discover which Atlas pages have information about a particular topic (e.g., historic information, artificial reefs, or nutrient chemistry). Get Started ›

This interactive tool lets you view mapped information about water resources as well as recreation, planning and infrastructure, habitats, and aerial imagery. You can also create and print your own custom maps. Get Started ›

View current water quality conditions for lakes, rivers and bays utilizing new dashboard technology that features dynamic maps, filters and gauges. Get Started ›

This tool allows you to select water quality, hydrology, or rainfall information from any Atlas. Download raw data tables for use in your own analyses and reports, or let the Data Download tool do the graphing for you. Get Started ›

Continuously-transmitting sampling sites can be accessed using this tool. View graphs of current data or download raw data. Ambient and historic sample sites can also be accessed by specifying a particular water resource. Get Started ›

This versatile tool assists in visualizing spatial differences in coastal water quality, mapping color to sample values. View stored maps, compare months/parameters, or create a custom map by choosing parameter and time period. Get Started ›

Climate change will have a profound effect on coastal southwest Florida. Use this tool to see how habitats are predicted to shift over time, as sea levels rise. Get Started ›

Southwest Florida's tidal creeks are the vital hydrologic link between estuaries and their watersheds. These assessments of selected creeks characterize their vegetation, bathymetry and bottom hardness. Get Started ›

This multi-agency hydrologic restoration project aims to restore freshwater flow to tidal creeks that flow into Charlotte Harbor. Get Started ›

How has water quality changed over time? This page tracks the trends of water quality related to nutrient pollution. Get Started ›

View the geographic distribution and variability of rainfall amounts, access statistical summaries of rainfall in graphs and charts, and download the data for your own analysis. Get Started ›

Metadata identifies data providers, tells where, when, and how often data is collected, and reveals caveats related to its use. Access GIS metadata (spatial/maps), and sampling data (primarily water quality, hydrology, and weather). Get Started ›

What is the condition of our shorelines? Periodic surveys help inform resource managers in their efforts to restore and maintain vegetated estuary shorelines that support diverse fishery and invertebrate populations. Get Started ›
