Why the Water Blueprint?
Data visualization that's both powerful and easy-to-use
Shaped by 200+ water officials, community members, and educators
We saw people struggling to find answers to their questions about water. Water source information was so hard to find that one community official had resorted to carrying it around with her on a hand-drawn map.
We created the Water Blueprint to make information about water resources and infrastructure accessible to civic leaders, home-buyers, professionals, and anyone else who needs it. It empowers community members to learn about Arizona's water with over 50 data resources in one easy-to-use place — no GIS experience needed.
60+ data layers
Bringing together data from local, state and federal agencies to build the most comprehensive tool on Arizona’s water
We are always adding new data and updating existing data streams as they are available
Guided by Experts
Over 200 water officials, community members, and educators helped us shape the tool
