Welcome to Defra Data Services Forum

    Updated Hydrology Data Explorer is LIVE!


    Our Hydrology Data Explorer app has been updated.  Changes implemented in the latest release are outlined below.

    1. More data – the most important change
    • Almost double the number of sites with daily mean flow (just short of 1,000 now).
    • Over double the number of sites in the south west with real time flow data (now around 150)
    • A small number of groundwater level sites (just short of 50).
    1. On the initial map based user interface
    • Enhanced search function (now includes river name and grid references). Key for mobile users who do not have the map functionality.  
    • Filtering of sites based on type (groundwater, flow, real time flow)
    1. On the station page
    • Key statistics including latest flow now appear at the top of the page (key for mobile users)


    • Enhanced meta-data including key links on the right


    • Enhanced graphs which show periods of poor quality data highlighted using the orange bar below.


    • A table view option to help us meet accessibility guidelines
    • Improved download clarity
