Flood Resilience – recent docs from the EPA

Here is a useful document from the EPA titled FLOOD RESILIENCE; A Basic Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities (Sept. 2014).  This 48 page document is in an unusual, 4-part interactive format. Issued Sept. 2014.

The Diva is curious about how you like the format.  Is it worth duplicating for other documents?

Thanks to Don Watson for the link. He describes the format as an instructional slide deck.

Update thanks to reader John Plodinec for the addition of this related EPA resource: Infrastructure/Water Security Techtools.

    While this might be nice for some browsing use cases, at some point the big budget organziations are going to have to jump on the semantic web bandwagon and build a knowledge base in which resources can be linked to each other, grow organically and be accessible through a variety of different visualization toolsets.

    Some links:
    The leading open source semantic web knowledge base tool: https://semantic-mediawiki.org/
    A beautiful implementation: http://nyc.pediacities.com/Nycpedia
    Nice TED talk about “linked data” and the semantic web: http://www.ted.com/talks/tim_berners_lee_on_the_next_web

  2. Personally, I like the format. The water folks at EPA also have a very nice Community-Based Water Resiliency tool at http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/watersecurity/techtools/cbwr.cfm.
