After we launched the Water Rights Atlas in Sacramento, we had further conversations with Phil Crader from the State Water Resource Control board about how we can improve the accuracy and contextual understanding of the water rights dataset for web developers and water researchers.

To facilitate this, I created this github repository for documenting the dataset, with an extensive README file.

We will work on creating explanations of the various and many fields in the Water Rights Database, which will help with re-presenting that information to the public.

We launched the Water Rights interactive in Sacramento, CA April 12, 2013. Work began in December 2012.
