In response to requests from decision and policy makers from the water resource management and city planning communities, NOAA and several NGOs (including: the American Planning Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, Water Environment Federation, Water Environment Research Foundation and the Water Research Foundation) worked together to develop a dashboard to provide a one-stop location for many of the extreme precipitation (flooding and drought) data set needs of this community. Over the course of a year and a half, these organizations worked with their constituents to determine the data sets most needed. Several NOAA line office staff worked together to secure the use of these data sets and designed the dashboard for the community. Released in March 2016 as part of the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit, the dashboard features relevant datasets, tool demos, and case studies. Continued collaboration and user analytics help to keep content in the dashboard relevant to the water resource management and city planning communities.
