Interpretive Summary: Hydrologic data, including rainfall and runoff data, have been collected on the Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed since the 1950s. These data are of national and international importance and make up the most comprehensive semi-arid watershed dataset in the world. The USDA-ARS Southwest Watershed Research has recently developed an online system to provide access to the data. The goal of the system is to promote analyses and interpretations of historic and current data by improving data access. Data are collected from sensors in the field and transmitted to computers in the office. The data are then processed, quality checked, and made available to users via the Internet. The system consists of a website, which provides an interface to the data, and a relational database, which is used to process, store, and manage data. The system was released to the public in October 2003, and since that time the online data access website has received more that 1000 visitors.
