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.
The Datamap has been created for non-account holders and the public to view data for current and past Texas Stream Team sites.
At anytime, you may request downloadable data in a tabular format by emailing us at TxStreamTeam@txstate.edu.
Please submit a Dataviewer Account Request Form to 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.
If account holders, questions and issues can be addressed to Texas Stream Team staff directly using the Case tab. This case system can be used to report issues with data entry, request changes to data, request new sites, or just to ask general questions.
Please contact TxStreamTeam@txstate.edu and include "Dataviewer Issues/Questions" in the subject line.
The data will be available as soon as it goes through the import process. Once that process is complete, we will note it on here so that you know when you should be able to view all your past data.
Pictures can be attached within the data entry form and should be done after saving the form. This feature also allows other file types to be attached to the online monitoring form.
