The project was led by Geoff McGhee, Creative Director at Water in the West. Support for Understanding California's Groundwater was provided by the California Water Foundation

We worked with research groups at Stanford University to create a platform for publishing four articles about the current drought and water management. We produced multiple static and interactive visualizations for two the articles, as well as the "wrapper" interface for all of the articles. Important graphics and interactives were given dedicated pages which can be shared separately from the articles. The aim of the project is to influence policy decisions in the State of California to avoid the disasterous effects of depleting the state's groundwater aquifers.
