For More Information:

The purpose of this website is to make hydrologic and ground elevation data readily available to scientists, managers, and others working in the Everglades.

Water-level data for over 300 gages operated by multiple agencies are accessed through an interactive map. A Station Information page for each gage lists location, ground elevation, and vegetation in the vicinity of the gage. Through data links, the Explore and View EDEN (EVE) graphical interface allows users to graph and download historic and near-real-time (within 24 hours) data for the gage.

Data from the network of gages are transmitted daily by radio or satellite telemetry to the operating agency then transferred to the USGS for interpolation of daily water-level surfaces for the Everglades. The interpolation model produces gridded surfaces (400m by 400m) of water-level surfaces for the freshwater part of the Everglades which are posted daily.

A set of EDEN application tools (EDENapps) make data in the daily water-level surfaces accessible by allowing users to view, plot, and manipulate the data. The tools include: DataViewer, xyLocator , TransectPlotter, Depth&DaysSinceDry, and NetCDFtoGrid.
