Project Overview

GaugeMap is the first interactive map showing live river level data from over 3,000 Environment Agency, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Natural Resources Wales and Office of Public Works Ireland river level gauges in England and Wales.
The extensive network of river level gauges across England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland covers all the major rivers as well as many smaller rivers, streams and brooks. The data displayed on each of the river level gauges on GaugeMap is recorded at 15 minute intervals by the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales.
For each river level gauge in England, Wales or Scotland there is also a corresponding Twitter accounts which tweets its level twice a day – an Internet of Things world first.
