The EarthCube goal of creating an infrastructure for managing and integrating knowledge across all geosciences in an open, transparent and inclusive manner aligns well with the overarching goals for the work that has been done in CUAHSI on Hydrologic Information Systems. CUAHSI has taken some steps in this direction, but a lot remains to be done. This paper describes these steps and makes some suggestions for the path ahead.
