[From website] A team within the Conservation Effects Assessment Project – Watershed Assessment Studies has developed a web-based data delivery system to provide access to soil, water, climate, land-management, and socio-economic data from fourteen watersheds. The system allows a variety of users to search, visualize, and download data via the internet. STEWARDS consists of: 1) a centralized site with Web/SQL/ArcGIS servers and application software, including a database management system (DBMS) and a geospatial data access portal; 2) data: including measurement data, imagery/GIS, and metadata; 3) users; and 4) research watershed sites that are data sources. Anticipated benefits of STEWARDS include preservation of data, increased data use, and facilitation of hydrological research within and across watersheds with diverse collaborators. (Docuticker)
