Data, GIS, and Modeling Work Group

DRWI Data, GIS, and Modeling Work Group

What does the Data, GIS, and Modeling Work Group do?

From January 2018 - December 2021, DVRPC staff will convene a Data, GIS, and Modeling Work Group for the Delaware River Watershed, which stretches across four states and provides drinking water to over 15 million people. The group will prioritize data needs, share knowledge, expand capacity, and collaborate to provide technical mapping, modeling, and spatial analysis assistance to the William Penn Foundation's Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI).

Who is Involved?

The work group consists of a diverse group of individuals, including GIS professionals, nonprofit staff, data scientists, modeling experts, and others.
