Texas Stream Team Waterways Dataviewer

Texas Stream Team offers the data entry platform Waterways Dataviewer for account holders who input data and the public Datamap for non-account holders to view Texas Stream Team sites and water quality data.

If you need a Waterways Dataviewer account, please have your group leader or data manager submit a Dataviewer Account Request Form. For data and sites related to the Colorado River, please refer to the Colorado River Watch Network.

Group leaders: Let us know which account to set up as a group account. It can be an existing account or a new one. Please note we can only have one account per group set up as a group account. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

  • Please note that Group Name and Citizen Scientist's Name(s) are required fields for all data forms.

    Selecting the Group Name ensures that the group data manger can view all their group's data and quality check it. Data must be reviewed by the group data manager before it is available to view. If you are not part of a group, enter Texas Stream Team.

    The Citizen Scientist's Name(s) field enables us to ensure that the effort of those who do not enter data is recognized.

  • Sites no longer require activation, rather the active/inactive status is determined by the last sample date. Sites not sampled within the last 12 months are considered inactive. Entering data for that site will change the status to active. When a new site is created, it will be considered active as soon as data is entered.

    Only sites that have water quality data associated with them will appear on the Datamap, which is updated monthly.  A new site may take two months to appear on the Datamap.

    For example, site 60004 was created on 16 March, sampled on 28 March, and entered on 1 April. Data for the Datamap was pulled on 4 April, so site 60004 and its first record will appear on the Datamap. If the data was not entered until 4 April or later, it will not appear until the May update.

*This page is updated regularly as we receive feedback from our citizen scientists and partners. (Last updated February 05, 2020)
