Water Quality Metadata
The Water Quality Metadata Project was undertaken by the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management with funding from the Australian Government Modernisation and Extension of Hydrological Monitoring Systems Program administered by the Bureau of Meteorology.
The development to date is the product of a series of consultations (surveys, face to face meetings and workshop) with representation from many water data collectors, managers and users across Australia. The reports propose a catalogue of protocols for water quality data including proposed water quality metadata.
The Forum extends its thanks to the project team and all concerned and particularly Gabrielle Van Willigen who led this broad consultation process with such gusto.
The Standards Business Forum will work with data managers to determine how the outputs of this project can be taken forward to add value to water quality monitoring in Australia.
