What is an Internet of Water Data Hub?

Internet of Water (IoW) Data Hubs allow one or more users to publish a variety of water data from disparate sources in one place. IoW Data Hubs can be organized by theme or geography and follow IoW Principles.1 They ensure that data and metadata from these disparate sources are standardized before they are published so that they can be seamlessly found and used together. IoW Data Hubs, together with the data discovery tool Geoconnex, are the underlying architecture that makes an internet of water possible.
