Presentation for AWRA Geospatial Technologies Conference May 10, 2022

HydroShare is a web-based repository and hydrologic information system operated by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) for users to share, collaborate around, and publish data, models, scripts, and applications associated with water related research. It serves as a repository for data and models to meet Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) open data mandates. Beyond content storage, the HydroShare repository also links with connected computational systems providing immediate value to users through the ability to reduce the needs for software installation and configuration and to document workflows, enhancing reproducibility. These approaches have facilitated considerable sharing and publication of data associated with research in HydroShare, enabling its re-use and the integration of data from multiple users to support broader synthesis studies. Data types supported include multidimensional netCDF, time series, geographic rasters and features. For some of these, standard data services, such as OpenDAP services for netCDF or Open Geospatial Consortium web services for geographic data types are automatically established when data is made public, improving machine readability and system interoperability. This presentation will describe geospatial data in HydroShare focusing on the geospatial feature and raster aggregations used to hold geospatial data and the functionality developed to automatically harvest metadata from these data types, simplifying the process of metadata creation for users. We will also describe how geospatial data services established for public resources holding geospatial data in HydroShare enable the data to be accessed by third party web applications adding to the functionality supported by HydroShare as a content storage element within a software ecosystem of interoperating systems.
