HydroDesktop - Free and Open Source Application for Finding, Getting, Analyzing and Using Hydrologic Data from the CUAHSI-HIS System
Entry ID: CUAHSI_HydroDesktop


Summary
Abstract: HydroDesktop is a free, open source application for finding, getting, analyzing and using hydrologic data from the CUAHSI-HIS system. It works with HydroCatalog which indexes the data to find out what data exists and where it is, then it gets the data from HydroServers where it is stored and published, communicating using WaterOneFlow web services to retrieve a local copy of the data. You can then analyze that data with any of a number of included tools, or you can export the data to use elsewhere. HydroDesktop is also extendable, meaning that plug-ins can be added to give it additional functionality. Additional extensions are being developed all the time, or if you're a little adventurous, you can create your own extensions.
