MDBA moves more data online
The MDBA has made real-time river data available to all.
Anyone wondering how high the River Murray is at Swan Hill, what salinity is like at Tocumwal, or how much water is in Hume Dam, can now find out with the push of a button.
The MDBA has given its online river data a major facelift, providing easier access to current and historic river data by way of an interactive ma.
The map shows information from more than 60 places on the River Murray system.
MDBA river operations spokesman Joseph Davis said river data had always been the most popular feature on the MDBA website, receiving more than 100,000 visitors last year.
“This overhaul gives people a much easier way to search and view the information they're interested in.”
Dr Davis said there were a number of new features on the revamped site.
“Our river data flags those locations where there's been a recent update, such as announcements of lock or weir closures for works, or advice about changes in river heights,” he said.
“The site is also now mobile and tablet friendly, meaning you can access it while you're on the river or out in your paddock.”
