News Image

The new Water Quality Contour Mapping Tool is available for use on the Tampa Bay Water Atlas. Funded by the Hillsborough County Environmental Protection Commission, the tool allows users to create their own custom contour map of Tampa Bay using any of the data available on the Atlas. Users can generate maps for any time period for one of the five predetermined water quality parameters, including dissolved oxygen, salinity, chlorophyll, color and secchi depth. Users can also peruse other maps created by other Atlas users. The tool may be expanded for use in other coastal areas and may also be redesigned for use with specific lakes as well. Therefore, your feedback regarding the functionality of the tool is important to us. So, please test it out and let us know what you think. Happy Mapping!
