Riskaware were recently approached by local charity, the Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART), to help with one of their citizen science projects, the Bristol Avon WaterBlitz. BART delivers education, land and river management advice, and practical river restoration work throughout the Bristol Avon catchment. This work includes coordination of the Bristol Avon WaterBlitz, a project initiated globally by an organisation known as Earthwatch, where the public collect water samples of their local waterways to monitor river health. This provides BART with important data to help them prioritise and target their conservation and protection activities.
To get the most insight from this data, and to accurately accumulate all the different data types and formats in a clear and engaging way, BART approached Riskaware to create a data visualisation platform that could display all the data that had been collected.
