Circle Of Blue And Qlik Team Up For White House Climate Data Initiative

Qlik (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in user-driven business intelligence (BI), and Circle of Blue, a team of award-winning journalists and researchers reporting on water and worldwide resource issues, announced that a new data dashboard ( http://www.circleofblue.org/waternews/CPX/ ) powered by QlikView is being featured today in Washington, DC as a supporting effort to the White House Climate Data Initiative. The application is part of Circle of Blue’s Choke Point: Index, a series of in-depth reports about the competition between water, food and energy in a changing climate. Circle of Blue combines in-depth reporting with collections of fresh and historically relevant data to provide greater context for decision-making.

The new application, drawing on public data sets, visualizes current and past levels of California water reservoirs and is designed to be scaled to compare hyper-local information and research with national and global trends. Researchers, journalists, water managers, and the public will have immediate access to strategic data about the systems that regulate their water sources, information that will allow for comparisons of present and historical water supply conditions.

Mass amounts of data, particularly water-related, are often compartmentalized within agencies and not available in comparative, visual formats. The QlikView dashboards and their sophisticated and engaging, state-of-the-art graphics – combined with Circle of Blue’s on-the-ground reporting, online networks, and participatory convenings – will help officials make informed decisions and better understand, monitor, compare and manage the nation’s most vulnerable water supplies in an era of climate change. The application also includes reservoir data from water-challenged areas of Australia.

“We face a time when climate change is stressing our water, food and energy systems, causing billions of dollars of disruptions and testing human and ecological resilience globally,” said J. Carl Ganter, managing director of Circle of Blue and member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Water Security. “Our capacity to respond is in doubt unless we dig deep into the connections and combine the best of reporting, data gathering, and participation to understand the scope of the challenges and responses. We need to activate the best, most creative thinking to understand and respond.”
