The data presented by and available through this web site consists of information from a variety of private, local, state, and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations, which is integrated into a single web location (i.e., portal) for the Klamath Basin, southern Oregon and northern California. This website is provided as a public service by Klamath County, Oregon, as a cooperative effort with these private, local, state, and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations (the "Participants"). Neither the Participants nor any other entity providing access to information through this web site, nor any of the Participant's employees, Consultants or Subcontractors, make any warranty, express or implied, including the fitness of the information for a particular purpose, or assumes any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, usefulness of any information, product, or process disclosed, or represents that its use would not infringe on privately owned rights. The user of this application assumes all responsibility and risk for the use of the information for any decision made as a result of this information, available from this server and the Internet in general. The user alone is responsible for the application and interpretation of this information and is responsible for use consistent with an appropriate level of caution.
This is a DEMONSTRATION application initiated by Klamath County, Oregon, with the express purpose of applying and evaluating new and emerging technologies in an effort to share information pertaining to water supply, natural resource and social and economic issues associated with water and resources management in the Klamath Basin. The vision is a common base of information to guide discussion, debate and resolution of the complex economic, social, and resource management issues within the Basin. The development of this demonstration application is guided by a formal document which identifies various future tools and applications. Those interested in participating may contact the Klamath County Public Works Department (lhickey @ co.klamath.or.us).
The user formally acknowledges that this is a DEMONSTRATION application and acknowledges and accepts the Disclaimer of Liability upon entering or using components of this application.
One of the tools available through the Klamath Basin DSS is something called a "Map Viewer."
The Map Viewers available through this DSS are web-based applications, which allow "distributed"
geo-spatial information and databases to be shared, integrated, viewed and used to analyze
resource issues. Current technology allows the data to be distributed, meaning that the
geo-spatial data or databases do not need to physically reside on the same computer. By using
various standards and specifications (see
www.opengeospatial.org), data can be made available through and easily integrated into a single
web application. The value in using these standards and specifications is the integration of
various data sources within a web browser environment made readily available to a broad range
of users without the need for extensive training or skill development. The cost associated with
the maintenance of the Map Viewer is also reduced because the data is maintained by the data
creator. A Map Viewer has the ability to place the power of data and information in the hands
of a broad range of users.
