Summary
Abstract: The Seminole County Watershed Atlas is designed to provide citizens,
scientists, and planners of the region with comprehensive and current
water quality, hydrologic, and ecological data, as well as, a library
of scientific and educational resources on ecology and
management. Typically, the scientists and citizens who live and work
on water bodies have found it difficult to gather the information they
need from the myriad of agencies that collect the related data. To
solve this problem, we conceived of the Atlas as a "One Stop
Information Shop" for concerned citizens and scientists alike. The
Atlas functions as a warehouse for a variety of water resources
information, including documents and educational links. We have also
strived to make the Atlas a rich resource that educates citizens about
the data presented and gives scientists easy access to the specialized
information they need. We encourage you to use the Atlas as a tool to
help in maintaining and improving our vital water resources.

The Mapping Interface was designed using ESRI's ArcIMS software and
developed in collaboration with ESRI programming consultants.

The Mapping Interface allows you to navigate through the region using
the interactive map. You can search for water bodies by name, view
lists of watersheds and water bodies, conduct an address search,
or use the zoom and selection
functions to move through the map and select a waterbody or
watershed. Follow this link to learn more about the Mapping Interface
and other features on the Atlas.

The Water Resource Pages were developed using Active Server Pages
(ASP) programming to present the data to you from the W-RAD.

The Water Resource Pages provide the user with relevant, current, and
historic data on individual watersheds and water bodies. There are also
additional documents, images, and links to related information
available to view online or download.

The Research section of the Atlas provides more complex and in-depth
tools for viewing the data contained in the W-RAD. Users can graph
trends over time of water quality and hydrology data. The Advanced
Graphing Tool was created using Web Charts 3D software by Green
Point. Users can also use the Data Download Tool to download Microsoft
Excel files or tab delimited text files of various data sets. The user
can then use these data in their own research and analysis.
