Mapping Per Capita Water Availability with Open Source Tools

California has been described as a dry place, with some unusual wet years. The last five years of drought – and precipitation this winter – support this. Per capita water availability is often reported at the state level, yet this spatial scale is not well suited to how we actually can use water. Looking a watershed level gives a different picture of how much water would naturally be available within area.
