Abstract

This report contains the proceedings of the first membership conference of the National Water Data Exchange (NAWDEX). The purpose of the conference was to acquaint participants in the NAWDEX program with the systems, data resources, and services available throughout the membership, to establish improved personal relationships within the membership, and to serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas and expertise on matters relating to improving the operation of NAWDEX and identifying the needs of the water-data community. Sixteen papers were presented at the conference which describe data systems of member organizations, needs of the data community, and programs of national interest. These papers are published in their entirety in this proceedings volume. Four working panels were also conducted dealing with (1) Program Administration, Management, and Coordination; (2) Recommended Standards for the Handling and Exchange of Water Data; (3) Water Data Indexing and Technical Systems Development; and (4) Request, Response and Service Activities. The reports and conclusions of these panels are included also. (Woodard-USGS)
