About the Data

The Kyl Center for Water Policy at ASU's Morrison Institute for Public Policy has collected dozens of publicly available data sets about water and put them all in one place with the Arizona Water Blueprint. We've also built a few of our own data layers and added them to the Blueprint. Below you can see all of the layers currently loaded into the Blueprint.

Clicking on each of the layer groups below will take you to a spreadsheet describing the data in those layers.
