The WaterWidgets project is a collection of Dashboard Widgets focused on the wet world around us.
A shining example of our tax money put to good use, the U.S. Department of the Interior's United States Geological Survey (USGS) is a wonderful resource. Founded in 1879, today the USGS measures and monitors [via satalite uplink] the amount of water flowing through our rivers, streams, and canals at thousands of sites around the country and provides this data to us on their website. While in no way [except for common citizenship] affiliated with the USGS, this project aims to make their wonderful data more readily accessible.
WaterWidgets is currently developed and maintained by Adam Franco.
