HydroShare is a trusted open-source data repository for the water community. In this webinar, users will learn the ins and outs and best practices of storing, sharing, collaborating on, and publishing data in HydroShare. We will also cover how to use CUAHSI’s free apps like CUAHSI JupyterHub and MATLAB online in conjunction with HydroShare.
The IoW Team at CGS will provide a detailed presentation and update for general audiences on the Internet of Water’s flagship technology, Geoconnex. When completed, this geospatial index will be capable of searching and retrieving any water metadata published in the United States, and ultimately North America and beyond. Geoconnex relies on a distributed linked data system. Such systems are foundational elements of modern internet search technology, allowing for the search and retrieval of millions of records in an instant. Such a linked data system does not yet exist for water data but has been an aspiration of the water data informatics community for some years, and the subject of significant research to date. This webinar will provide visualizations of Geoconnex (e.g., what does it do, how does it work), including visualizations of the current contents and anticipated growth in scope and scale of the index this year.
With the passage of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act in 2018, the Federal Emergency Management Agency launched a new program to provide a larger and more reliable funding stream for pre-disaster mitigation – the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (“BRIC”) Program. In this webinar, Scott Baldwin, Senior Mitigation Manager in Hagerty Consulting’s Recovery Division, will discuss the structure of the BRIC program and how communities are beginning to use these funds to prepare for future natural disasters, including droughts.
The water quality movement needs pipelines for people to connect, and data to be shared. The Commons presents its advancements in connecting people through the WDC Mainstem Network and sharing data through the Water Reporter API.
The Open Geospatial Consortium’s family of API standards are helping make geospatial data on the web more accessible and interoperable. This presentation will introduce pygeoapi – a Python server implementation of OGC’s standards. Kyle Onda, from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy’s Center for Geospatial Solutions, will walk you through how to set up an API endpoint and discuss several ideas for how to use this flexible, open-source API framework for water data applications.
This two-part workshop series will feature a project-based overview of concepts and open-source tools for performing geospatial analyses with hydrologic data using web services in R and Python. Join us for practical demonstrations and guidance for all experience levels.
Part one will focus on R and take place on July 19. Part two will focus on Python and will take place on July 26.
