Drawing on the success of the Waterlive app, the NSW Government foresaw a need to open up their broad information resources to a wider audience.

The Our Water website uses interactive mapping to provide a state-wide or local perspective of how water resources are managed and protected by the government in a clear and accessible format. Underpinning the website are cloud-based geospatial platforms that process complex data into readily understood map outputs. As a result, the website is able to share near real-time information with NSW residents regarding surface and groundwater.
