RiverkeepermWater to create a series of data visualizations for Riverkeeper, an organization dedicated to restoring and protecting the Hudson River and the New York City Watershed from environmental lawbreakers. Riverkeeper has been collecting water quality monitoring data along the Hudson from New York Harbor to Waterford, NY since 2007, but had no effective means of communicating their findings to the public on their website. NiJeL developed overview maps, tables and customized charts showing each sampling location and the amount of pollution tracked over time. These visualizations should give policymakers and the public a better understanding of current and historical conditions at each site, and some impetus to develop a more robust sampling regime to notify recreational users of elevated pollution levels.
At NiJeL, we transform our partners' data into stunning visualizations such as dynamic maps and easy-to-understand dashboards, with real-time charts and graphs. We develop custom, flexible databases to improve our partners' efficiency and maximize their community impact.
Many organizations feel overwhelmed by the need to organize their own data while also paying attention to new data sources, such as social media or online government and NGO databases. At NiJeL, we work in close collaboration with our partners to make sense of and modernize their data so they can harness actionable information from their many data streams.
Our custom systems for data visualization, analysis, and participation enable organizations to utilize various information streams, visualize and analyze their data quickly, and open two-way lines of communication and participation with the communities they serve and the public.
