Kiawah Island Beach Community Dashboard

How do you use environmental monitoring… at the beach? Just ask Kiawah Island Beach Community Association.

Check out their great use of a live Earth-cam stream alongside tide monitoring in to communicate real-time beach conditions to the public via their website

Earth cam Water Level and Tide


Their public-access dashboard is connected up to dataloggers measuring tide movements in real-time and demonstrating predicted levels based on their data.  The slight variation in predicted vs actual tide heights is interesting. 

They also use predictive future data and have alert levels for flooding, all programmed and monitored through

Super cool!
