Using ArcGIS Online to Support Collaboration and Information-Sharing for River Catchment Management
The rivers trust movement in the UK is made up of nearly 80 grass-roots, community organisations, ranging in size from one or two individuals, up to teams of 30 people, all engaged in sustainable management of rivers and their catchments. Collaboration and information sharing is essential to promote an integrated approach to river catchment management, which balances society’s needs with a healthy river ecosystem. As the umbrella body for nearly 60 of these trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland The Rivers Trust provides technical data sharing and GIS support to help the local trusts engage partners and share knowledge, skills and expertise across multiple organisations and sectors, so that resources and funds can be used more effectively, and interventions can be targeted appropriately.
Using story map templates and the custom app builder, combined with national data layers, which can be filtered to each river catchment, The Rivers Trust is empowering local trusts to share data with local partners and engage members of the public.
