Download Water Quality and Weather Data Using the SWMP Graphing Tool
The System-wide Monitoring Program, or SWMP (pronounced “swamp”), Graphing Tool, available at coast.noaa.gov/swmp, provides educators and students with access to SWMP data.
All SWMP data sets are accessible through the Centralized Data Management Office, which is responsible for maintaining and updating the system-wide standard operating procedures for data collection and reporting, plus quality assurance and control. The system was designed primarily for scientists, but data-savvy students and educators may also use it to access SWMP data sets and metadata.
To obtain the metadata for the SWMP data, contact the Centralized Data Management Office. Data documentation includes the designation of rejected, suspect, and corrected data and additional quality assurance and quality control information about the data in the form of flags and codes embedded in the data file.
