NZ Water Citizens Database

NZ Water Citizens is a landing page for anyone in New Zealand interested in volunteer stream monitoring.

The data entry pages are designed to work well with SHMAK, but you can collect your data using another toolkit or other standard methods. You will need to log in or sign up before you can start entering data.

What does the site provide?

  • A database for storing volunteer-collected freshwater monitoring data.
  • The ability to present and view freshwater monitoring data from other sites
  • A forum for giving feedback, asking questions and sharing stories

The NZ Water Citizens website and database was made possible due to funding from NIWA, Wellington City Council (WCC), Greater Wellington City Council (GWRC), Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BoPRC), and Nelson City Council (NCC). The site is hosted by Groundtruth.
