Land, Air, Water Aotearoa (LAWA) is a collaboration between New Zealand’s 16 regional and unitary councils, Cawthron Institute, Ministry for the Environment and NIWA.
Connecting you with New Zealand’s environment through sharing scientific data
LAWA wanted a site that would bring together disparate pockets of environmental monitoring data from all of New Zealand’s regional councils, NIWA, and the Ministry for the Environment.
We worked with OpenLab to design a website that visually captures the beauty of New Zealand waterways. While sharing scientific data to keep you informed about the environment.
Using an Umbraco content managed website we built a website that integrates:
- Regional council Hilltop real-time WML data feeds
- LINZ feeds to provide GIS data
- NIWA data feeds to provide national water quality data
It also uses regional council ArcGIS server WFS feeds to import geo-spatial data into LAWA. And has responsive HTML components.
