GSI Partner member, Azavea, recently released updated versions of two web-based applications, Model My Watershed and Micro Site Run Off Model. The applications are the product of collaboration between Azavea and the Stroud Water Research Center to provide the data and impact modeling of regional water quality to citizens, conservation practitioners, municipal decision-makers, educators, and students.

The applications “combine a number of data sets, including land cover and soil type, to compute stormwater runoff for an area of interest. The app calculates stormwater runoff and water-quality impacts using professional-grade models and compares potential conservation or development scenarios to existing land use.”

The potential impact of these tools to aid GSI Partners’ work is great and we are excited to see what innovation comes from using these resources. Learn more information about these tools on Azavea’s website.
