|co-irrigated-ag-animation||Agriculture, urban||Colorado||Historical 1900s-2000s (annual)||Animated GIF (and 5-year images) showing change in irrigated agricultural over time, created using irrigated lands data from Colorado's Decision Support Systems (CDSS). This visualization is under development.||Irrigated agriculture animation website|
|cdss-webapp-snodas-tools||Water supply from snowpack||Colorado||2003-current (daily)||SNODAS Snowpack products for Colorado water supply basins. This is a separate dataset that provides information even when SNOTEL stations are not available or have melted out.||CDSS SNODAS Tools Website|
|cwcb-viz-co-watershed-plans||Varies, basin planning||Colorado||Recent snapshot||Watershed plans available as links from basin map. This is a prototype created to illustrate visualization of a simple list of watershed plans.||HUC8 map of watershed plans|
|owf-viz-co-snodas-gapminder||SNODAS water year animation||Colorado||Water year 2016||SNODAS snowpack animation using Gapminder. This is an experiment - various combinations of parameters and water years are being tried and additional visualizations will be added in the future.||Colorado Water Year 2016 SNODAS Gapminder Animation|
|owv-viz-co-spdss-ag-gapminder||Agriculture sprinkler acreage||Colorado, South Platte Basin||SPDSS period 1950-2013 (annual)||South Platte irrigated acreage animation using Gapminder. View how irrigated acreage and use of sprinkler irrigation have changed over time. This is an experiment - various combinations of parameters are being tried and additional visualizations will be added in the future.||South Platte Irrigated Acreage|
