DataStream Publishes Open Data Standard to Support Water Science
The publication of an open data standard is enabling valuable freshwater data to be organized, accessed, and shared in a harmonized way. This data standard underpins DataStream, a growing online platform for sharing water data collected by Canada’s diverse water monitoring and research community.
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.
Ninth Annual NWT Water Strategy Implementation Workshop
DataStream participated in the Ninth Annual NWT Water Strategy Implementation Workshop in Dettah, NT from October 24 to 25. This year’s workshop theme, “Linking Knowledges and Ways of Knowing,” focused on the need to draw from the strengths of different knowledge systems to achieve the vision of the NWT Water Strategy.
