Breaking Down the Data Silos: Exploring ways to optimize data sharing for better water resources management at all scales

While this event has passed, the broader conversation around data sharing continues. The 2020 symposium was a free, virtual event that offered an interactive exploration of data sharing in Indiana and how to improve it. We kicked off the event with opening remarks from InWMC President Dave Scott and then jumped right into an online, interactive visioning activity. Attendees were able to share their ideas about data sharing in Indiana and how they would like to see it evolve over the next five years.

Attendees learned about data sharing at different scales through a number of presentations and participated in roundtable discussions about how they might benefit from greater access to data and the problems and questions surrounding its availability and use.

At every symposium, the InWMC always makes time for networking. While that was a bit more challenging this year, attendees enjoyed plenty of time to network and interact with their friends and colleagues through open Zoom Rooms during lunch and breaks.

If you missed out on this event, you’re in luck. You can find the agenda all the presentations at the links below:
