Water Data Central has been created to serve as a window on
the data, environmental programs, and other useful information and
reports about water that are available from the department and its
partner environmental and public health agencies. It will continue
to evolve as more data sources become available and as more tools
are developed for searching the data, analyzing them, graphing them,
mapping them, and using them to make better and better environmental
decisions to assess, restore, and protect Florida’s unique water
resources in the future.
Data – This will take you to a list of
linked data sites and sources, both the department’s and those of
other agencies, that can be followed to review available water data
on a variety of subjects in a variety of formats and, in some cases,
to manipulate and download the data.
Programs – This will take you to a
list of linked important program sites related to water issues. Many
of these same programs are available from the main Water webpage.
State of the Environment – This link
will take you to various reports that summarize data, assess water
quality and quantity, and otherwise synthesize complex issues into a
more comprehensible picture of the state of Florida’s environment.
Reports will be added and updated as they become available.
Search by Location
- This interactive mapping website enables you to display locations
and data layers on a map. It lets you choose the information you
want from over 90 layers provided by a variety of programs and
partnering agencies. Map layers include DEP regulated facilities,
FEMA flood zones, land use / land cover, aerial photography,
elevation, USGS quad maps, and many more. You choose the base map,
data layers, and special features, and create your own special
purpose, custom maps. Additionally, this has powerful analytical
tools, like the “Resources-at-Risk” report which identifies
environmental concerns and regulated entities within a certain
radius of a point you select on the map. The following pages require
