Where Does Your Water Come From?

See on Scoop.itHomo Cyberneticus

This interactive map documents where 443 million people around the world get there water (although the United States data is by far the most extensive).  Most people can’t answer this question.  A recent poll by The Nature Conservancy discoverd that 77% of Americans (not on private well water) don’t know where their water comes from, they just drink it.  This link has videos, infographics and suggestions to promote cleaner water.  This is also a fabulous example of an embedded map using ArcGIS Online to share geospatial data with a wider audience.
