WikiRiver is a community based site with guides, live water levels and maps of whitewater rivers in Australia.
Websites like forums or online guideboooks, were the first digital resources for paddlers.
If a resource is a Website, it is optimized to be used on a big screen. It may or may not be also optimized for mobile devices.
Some Websites for paddlers have a long history and only work well on a desktop- or laptop computer. If they are not designed to be mobile friendly, they may still work on a phone or tablet, but are often hard to use, as it needs a lot of zooming around the small screen. Some functions of a non- mobile friendly website may rely on the user having a Mouse to hover over an element, which can not be done on a touch -only device.

...a platform to collect and share river descriptions for and with whitewater canoeists...
Hallo ihr furchtlosen Stürzer und verträumten Gleiter, ihr Bigwater-Freaks und Staudenrauscher, ihr Expeditionisten und Hausbachfetischisten,
Im Mittelpunkt meiner privaten Kajakwildwasser-Website stehen Informationen zu bekannten und weniger bekannten mittelschweren Flüssen in Europa. Ergänzend hierzu werden von mir aber auch etliche leichtere und einige schwerere Flüsse dokumentiert.
A Blog with river-descriptions and trip reports.
A Solar Powered Gauge based on Arduino and an Ultrasonic distance Sensor. Sebastian is happy to share details about it.
A Webcam on the River Murg.
It uses custom-designed Webcam Hardware based on an ESP32 Microcontroller and a GSM Modem. It's speciality is to be super-low power, so it can operate for months off a Motorbike battery. Want such a cam too? Mail the creator, Link on the Cam's page.
Our goal is to put monitoring stations in remote stream locations that are left off the USGS and other agencies priority list.
We aim to partner with and work for the community to reach as many streams as possible. StreamBeam is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
We gather, maintain, and present valuable stream data as an open resource for the community.
The RiverGuide is an evolving guide book for all of New Zealand's water related activities.
