Are you Thirsty LA?
Get access to aqueduct levels in the Owens Valley.
This application regularly crawls and publishes a set of somewhat ahem crusty web pages found in the dark rescesses of the LADWP domain. These pages are automatically updated with up-to-the-minute sensor read outs for various metrics in the Owens Valley aqueduct sytem.
The issue with the data set as published
- Only the last three days of data is published - a lot of these figures don't change much day to day.
- No visualizations - mostly what we're interested in is change, and a visualization is a much more efficient way to impart this knowledge
- No programmatic access to the underlying data - we should be allowed to use this data however we see fit.
