New Mackenzie DataStream website coming soon!
February 11, 2019
Some big changes are coming to Mackenzie DataStream and we can’t wait to share them!
Slated for release later this month, the new Mackenzie DataStream will have a fresh new design and several upgraded features that make data sharing and searching easier than ever before:
- New search filters for locating datasets
- Streamlined upload process for sharing data
- New data format that includes even more water quality parameters
- Community stories map so you can learn what others are doing
- And more!
Check back soon! We'll be releasing the new site in the coming weeks!
New Feature: Explore Data by Watershed
DataStream’s new watershed boundary layers cut back on guesswork and make it easier to explore data in the regions that matter to you. We’ve incorporated watershed map layers across all three platforms thanks to geospatial data available on Canada’s Open Government Portal (open data for the win!).
DataStream’s first Northern Data-thon!
In May the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) hosted over 40 water stewards from across the territory for a community-based water monitoring workshop. The workshop included training in monitoring protocols, results-sharing and discussion. It also provided an opportunity for some hands-on time with DataStream for water monitors to dive into all the data they’ve been collecting.
NEW FEATURE: Search for Monitoring Data by Sub-Basin
One of the exciting things about DataStream is watching it grow and evolve over time. Not only are more datasets coming online, but we are continually making it better thanks to the thoughtful feedback we get from DataStream users.
