Access to consumptive water use data for irrigated agriculture has been limited and expensive, keeping it out of the hands of most water users and decision-makers. OpenET is a collaborative effort to develop an online platform for mapping evapotranspiration (ET) at the scale of individual fields. A partnership between NASA, the Desert Research Institute, and Environmental Defense Fund, and Google Earth Engine, OpenET aims to use the best available science and publicly available data to increase access to satellite-based ET and consumptive water use information for farmers and water managers.
