Description

HydroShare is an online, collaborative system for open sharing of hydrologic data, analytical tools, and models. It supports the sharing of and collaboration around “resources” which are defined by standardized content data models for data formats and models commonly used in hydrology. HydroShare takes advantage of social media functionality to enhance information about and collaboration around hydrologic data and models. It also supports web services and server/cloud based computation operating on resources for the execution of hydrologic models and analysis and visualization of hydrologic data. This web based cyberinfrastructure takes work off your desk or laptop computer and onto infrastructure or 'cloud' based data and processing servers. This talk will describe the HydroShare collaborative environment and web based services being developed to support the sharing and processing of hydrologic data and models. Web service tools and a Python client library provide researchers with access to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources without requiring them to become HPC experts. This reduces the time and effort spent in finding and organizing the data required to prepare the inputs for hydrologic models and facilitates the management of online data and execution of models on HPC systems. This presentation will introduce the HydroShare functionality developed to date and describe ongoing development of functionality to support collaboration and integration of data and models. This presentation will illustrate the use of web based data and computation services supported by HydroShare.
