Visualising Ireland’s Water Framework Directive Status
Catchments.ie makes use of EPA Water Framework Directive structured data to publish information about water quality in Ireland. This experimental visualisation allows you to interact with some of this data.
This visualisation contains high level information for all 4,829 waterbodies in Ireland. To get started, you can decide how to shade the individual waterbodies – we suggest starting with Shade by ‘Status 2013-2018’ as this is the most up to date status information. You can then choose how to group and compare the waterbodies, for example you can Group by ‘Waterbody Type’ and then Compare ‘Region’ or any other attribute.
You can also hover over any of the points representing a waterbody and see the some information about that waterbody.
If you come up with any interesting visualsiations we’d love for you to share them on Twitter and tag @EPAcatchments so we can see them.
