Collaborative area for discussing Bugs, Updates, and Modifications to Great Lakes to Gulf

Critical to do before Walton Grantees Webinar:


  1. Do we have polygons for the "unmonitored area" in illinois for the Illinois Drainage view? ... I think it would be clearer if we displayed those polygons along with the existing catchments and had a legend that said "Load from this area extrapolated" Aaron Hoyle-Katz ... This is a lower priority at this point, but still important.
      1. We need to think about this. If the polygon shows, then users want to click and try to see the data. Yes, what you say makes sense. What if we used an additional shading similar to "no data" shading, and have it say "area extrapolated to calculate statewide load"
      2. Yes, we have a polygon shows all the Illinois areas not covered by stations. This is the same polygon that we used in the "Tracking Trends with GLTG" storyboard, slide 2. -AHK
  2. Hoping to get the WRTDS output for this station and Valley City done today or this weekend so they can be implemented on the dashboard as an example of Sentinel Site.   WRTDS outputs for Illinois River Valley City and Iowa River Wapello are attached below. Annual "summary" should be the Annual Load. Data and example charts below. Phosphorus is not done yet, that will take some additional work, but can be added later.
  3. Hey Aaron Hoyle-Katzcan you take a look at the polygon for Iowa River at Wapello? It looks a little weird on the east side, especially compared to the one here
    1. Whoops, that was definitely generated with bad data. Updated geojson here:

  1. when you follow link to the geostreaming app, there is no way to get back to the landing page / dashboard page from the geostream app.
  2. on dashboard page, need to get rid of the "no data - avg of surrounding watersheds" thing under the legend. (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
  3. Please replace the boundary type info box text on the Dashboard with the attachment Dashboard boundary type info box Dashboard Boundary type info box.docx (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
  4. BUG: in the watershed boundary view, there is no way to de-select the watershed polygon to go back to a main view (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
    1. We need to display station icon
    2. It's resolved in the new version. You can deselect the watershed by clicking on it again.
  5. On IL drainage dashboard, replace "Overall Summary" with "Statewide Summary" ; Also replace "Yearly Average - 2017" with "Average Yield - 2017" (Diego Calderon )
  6. BUG: Dashboard, showing IL drainage boundary type: from beginning state, when you click on a watershed, the little popup box opens and shows contributing waterways and acres, but it does not give the name of the watershed. After you click a station icon, it does show the name, but when you click on a different watershed, the box moves, but the information does not change. Only after clicking another station does the information in the box change. (Already fixed in the new version).
  7. Add catchment polygon for 1) Iowa River at Wapello and 2) Illinois River at Valley City (Valley City is already in use in the Illinois Dashboard.) (Diego Calderon )
  8. We need to add a link (citation) to McIsaac's report where the data comes from on the HUC-8 dashboard view  ... I think having something under the graph on the right hand side would work fine. (Aaraj Habib )
  9. Move variable dropdowns on the home page to the sidebar  (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
  10. Update partners and FAQ pages (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
  11. Fix popup bugs and fix disappearing markers (Kaveh Karimi Asli):
    1. Also need a way to get back to the Illinois "state-wide" or "overall summary" nutrient yield chart after clicking into a watershed while on the Illinois Drainage screen
        1. Ted Kratschmer currently, if you click the station again, it will go back to "overall summary" (ok- It seemed like the other day that was not happening, but maybe I missed it -TK)
      2. Bug: when turn off the selection of watershed, the popup should be disappeared. 
  12. Rename "watershed boundary" to "Trend Watersheds" under Boundary Types (Diego Calderon ) 
  13. Need to have better explanation of the Avg. Annual Nutrient yield graph (Ted Kratschmerto provide information) (See below) (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
    1. "Yield is a measure of nutrients lost per unit area. This measure is useful because it removes the influence of watershed size in a measurement so that different size watersheds may be compared."
  14. BUG: in the Watershed boundary view, the title on the right says "Illinois" Please change to the state where the station is (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
  15. In the watershed boundary view before clicking a station, the "illinois overall summary" graph and chart are displayed. Need to either remove those until something is clicked on, or perhaps show the graph for the total load to the Gulf of Mexico (data can be found in the nitrate load tab of this worksheet. "Tons" is the main bar, and the confidence interval bounds are TONS_L95 and TONS_U95. Annual Load to Gulf of Mexico.csv (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
      1. Team needs to discuss this matter
      2. Confluence Page Loads to gulf of mexico for watershed dashboard
  16. On the Illinois Drainage page, we need to have under the Overall Summary, a box that says "The total nitrate load leaving the state of Illinois is estimated to be xxxx lb 2019" or whatever year, updated by year as the user explores different years in the graphs. We need can get that information from the graphs on page 10 & 11. (Aaron Hoyle-Katz  may have this, or perhaps he can get it from McIsaac) ... on the "Illinois Drainage" page we should also add an Annual Load graph along with the Annual Yield (Kaveh Karimi Asli
  17. (Diego Calderon)
  18. The watershed boundary polygon in Minnesota says station USGS 05418720 ... This is the station name for a different station (Maquoteka river in Iowa). I'm unsure what the actual station number is. Something on the Minnesota River... Mankota? (Kaveh Karimi Asli)
      1. Ted Kratschmer who knows this info? Does Aaron know? Aaron Hoyle-Katz do you know what the catchment on the "Watershed Boundary" represents? the one in Minnesota that shows up.
        1. MI 0035 is the station number, I believe this mislabel will be fixed soon. -AHK 
        2. The station "pretty name" is the Minnesota River at Fort Snelling. The data is collected by the Metropolitan Council. I will not be able to do a WRTDS output for this in time for the meeting.
