UK Hydrological sensor data integration tool

This is a prototype web tool for demonstrating the integration and visualisation of hydrological sensor data (often real-time) from diverse online sources: - Water quality (WQ) data from the Environment Agency (EA) online Water Quality Data Archive - River flows and levels from the UKCEH National River Flow Archive, the EA online Hydrological Data service, and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) Water Level Data service - Recent and forecast air temperatures from the Met Office DataPoint service. The web tool enables mapping and graphing of data from these sites to assist with assessment of data availability spatially, and provides an example of the benefit of more standardised access to sensor data services. We aim to evolve this work to demonstrate use of widespread data standards to enable comparability between data from different sensor networks.
