Water scarcity is problematic in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Water Team was tasked to help the Santa Fe Watershed Association to revive the Santa Fe River by improving people's relationships with water. First the team created maps using Google Maps and Java coding that link to data collected by the city. These maps will automatically update when the city modifies data spreadsheets. Second, the team created a model to serve as a foundation to show the interaction of water in the environment within the Santa Fe River Watershed. A phone application was designed to increase public interaction with the river. This project has provided the city of Santa Fe with the ability to transform its methods of publicizing watershed data and increasing community involvement in the Santa Fe Watershed.
